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 class, much like all of the classes Monster puts on, was so fun! Melissa is an excellent and extremely kind teacher. This was also a great way to explore different fabrics and embroidery stitches in a low-stakes way. 10/10 would recommend.
I’ve been wanting to take a class with MCreativeJ for a while and this class where you combine layering fabric swatches with embroidery stitching did not disappoint! Highly recommend.
