How can we customize our event?
Embroidery Babes can customize your event to make it fun and memorable for your group or guests! All workshops include a take-home embroidery materials kit that includes all of the supplies needed to embroider during the workshop and at home. The base pricing is for the option when attendees bring their own item to embroider (usually a piece of clothing or accessory). We can also create a package where Embroidery Babes supplies the items to stich*. Examples include a sweatshirt, canvas tote, or dog bandana. *Price varies depending on item Customization Ideas: - Embroidering “Oy Vey” on clothing for a Temple Sisterhood or JCC “Kvetch & Stitch” - PTA/HSA Mom’s Night Out “Spirit Stitch & Sip” where attendees can create custom clothing for their kids - Mom’s night out where you can embroider your children’s handwriting on an item - Baby shower activity where guests design and embroider a onesie or bib - Bridal shower activity where guests embroider a custom monogram on cocktail napkins for the bride and groom - Bachelorette party “Stitch & B*tch” - Decorate an item with patches for a Girl Scout troop

Michelle was lovely and made it so easy to learn a new skill while making it super fun and festive
It was awesome coming home to my daughter and telling her that I embroidered this shirt for her
