About the Instructor
Melissa Galbraith is the fiber artist behind MCreativeJ. She was born and raised in the desert of Washington state, where her mother instilled a love of making things by hand at an early age. Drawing on her love of nature, Melissa creates whimsical and modern embroidery patterns and kits. She loves sharing how anyone can embroider with her embroidery kits, patterns, and virtual workshops.
Melissa was reintroduced to hand embroidery after finding her desk job monotonous and needing a creative outlet. She loves that embroidery allows her to play with texture and color and is also a portable craft. Along the way, many crafty minded makers also wanted to learn how to embroider too but were daunted by where to start. So Melissa began to share her embroidery knowledge.
Melissa's embroidery kits and patterns make it easy to learn a new craft for makers of all skill levels. She loves seeing makers fall in love with the needle arts and seeing that magical ah-ha moment of learning something new.
This was a good basic stitch class and the instructor was great (went slowly, attended to every participant, good teacher, skilled at the craft). I did not like the mask policy (if one person requests masks be worn, everyone has to wear them) - would be better if people just masked if they wanted to but leave others to do as they wish, this definitely took away from the enjoyment of the class (hot small room, hard to see with glasses while wearing a mask) and is the reason I would not take another class here. (I work in healthcare and am a supporter of masks but we are at a point where it is safely optional in the community).
