Like many crafts now practiced in leisure, embroidery was once a widely known, practical everyday skill. Even those who didn’t need to be able to sew, tailor, or mend their own clothing picked up a needle and thread for fun. Want examples? How about this: Queen Elizabeth I would take part socially with other world leaders. And word has it that Hollywood heart throb Henry Fonda turned to the craft to relax between takes. Need a little “help” getting started? Check the schedule at Gingiber in Springdale or South Main Creative in Little Rock to catch an upcoming class.
