Celebrate your home state, commemorate a recent road trip or stitch connections between you and your loved ones. Join artist, maker and embroidery enthusiast Robert Mahar to explore all of the ways you can embroider your adventures in the “Lower 48″, embellishing a beautiful 1906 wall map of the contiguous United States custom printed on a half yard of cotton linen canvas.

Perfectly suited for beginners, instruction will cover embroidery basics and essential stitches. However, students with more embroidery experience are invited to join for a fun refresher course and the opportunity to stitch a large-format map. All materials (fabrics, embroidery floss, hoops and needles!) along with instructional diagrams are provided.

Please note that this map is 100+ years old and some cartographic changes have taken place in the intervening years – however, the state borders and city names remain largely accurate. Cleverly designed with guides, you’ll find it easy to machine sew finished edges  for display or consider wrapping your map around a cork board to pin photos of your friends, family and travels.

Attendees will also receive 20% off any purchases made at Monster that evening.

BIO
Robert Mahar is an artist, designer and maker who develops and teaches imaginative crafts and clever do-it-yourself projects through high-quality video tutorials on Bluprint, CreativeLive and YouTube and in-person workshops.  He’s also a proud Season one alumni of NBC’s creative competition show Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.  The crafty content Robert develops and presents to his online audience and workshop attendees is often rooted in nostalgia.  His talent for reinventing old-school crafts with a decidedly modern twist is evident in the gift line he developed with Knock Knock and has gained him a loyal following. With an education in studio arts and art history, he has worked in a variety of creative fields including 13 years as an appraiser of modern and contemporary art. When he’s not working in his studio, Robert obsesses over vintage craft books and schemes ways to make it big as a doughnut connoisseur.
