Learn with Linnet Bird Designs


Handcrafting skills used to be handed down in families, from generation to generation. And while that was my experience, it isn't everyone's. Those skills go in and out of fashion—but the satisfaction of making by hand endures. Whether you want to take up sewing, learn embroidery, or give your kids access to the confidence learning a new skill can bring, there's an option for you!

Linnet taught embroidery to my grade 2/3 class, and it was such a great experience for all of us! She is so patient and knowledgeable. The workshop was well-paced, differentiated, hands on, and gave all students an authentic experience! Beyond all of that, the students that were the most engaged were quite surprising to me. One of my most high-energy boys turned to me while stitching and told me how relaxing he found it. All the thumbs up.
