A Bookmark Embroidery Class with Hibiscus Linens!
Buxton Books Presents

This event has passed.

A few months ago, Buxton Books began sourcing embroidered, handmade, linen bookmarks from a company called Hibiscus Linens. To nobody's surprise, they quickly became favorites at Buxton Books among booksellers and customers alike. 

Now, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Bookmark Embroidery Class in the bookstore with the founder and artisan behind Hibiscus Linens, Mariana Barran!

During this class, Mariana herself will guide you through simple embroidery stitches and design so that you can create your very own linen bookmark. At the end of the 45-minutes, each attendee will have a made-with-love bookmark to take home with them, as well as a knowledge of how to continue their embroidery practice at home. Throw away those old receipts and business cards being used to hold your page and make your days reading at the park, beach, or coffee shop even more stylish. Plus have fun learning (or honing your skills) with an embroidery expert! 

This class is suitable for all levels! No prior embroidery experience required.
