Wouldn't it be fun to come together from scattered places and create?

To gather with other creatives and just slow down for a bit to create for the sake of creating? To play with paint and stitching and discover something new? Then come gather in the Gather Paint Stitch creative hub for fun creative lessons that will help you find your creative flow. We will be playing with various ideas and supplies that are playful, colorful, and heartfelt. We will be combining paint and stitch along with some other fun things as we create a hand made junque journal. It’s all about slowing down and being in the moment and being willing to play and see where things go! It’s all about creating with heart. Sound good? Keep reading for all the details.

Come join the fun!
