Our Featured Artist this round is Melissa Galbraith of M Creative J. Her stunning original embroidered plant and landscape pieces are hanging at Monster. Still looking for a Mother's Day present? These are 100% in the running for best gift for your plant-loving mama.
In lieu of an artist chat on Instagram Live, we're going to have an embroidery lesson. Melissa will be teaching us her three favorite embroidery stitches. Our Instagram is @monstermonstershop. If you follow us, you'll get a notification when the live begins on 5/22 at 6:30 p.m. PST.
Anyone is welcome to join and the event is free to attend. You can purchase a supply kit off our website or gather your own supplies. 50% of all supply sales will be donated to the non-profit of Melissa's choosing: Seattle ReCreative.
If you purchase supplies from Monster, you will receive:
- 6-inch wood embroidery hoop
- 3 colors of floss
You can choose to have them shipped to you (be sure to order in enough time for your supplies to reach you) or you can pick them up at the shop during our regular hours.
