EMBROIDERED GEMS presented by J.Villa Workshop

  • Old Town Social 455 West North Avenue Chicago, IL, 60610 United States (map)

Join J.Villa at Old Town Social for an embroidery workshop!

Embroidery, the art of using thread to embellish fabric, has come back in unique and fresh new ways and we'll look at a few artists who constantly inspire me while we stitch! You'll learn the super popular and fab satin stitch so you can fill in these sweet pre-printed gems. You'll leave with a pair of cocktail napkins and the itch to keep on stitchin'! 

Old Town Social will feature two cocktails for our time together. One is a tequila based, pink drink called, La Primavera and the other is a vodka blackberry called, The Standard. These two jewel-toned, delicious drinks make the perfect pairing for our embroidered gems! 


  • An embroidery hoop and starter set of threads
  • A pre printed design on two cocktail napkins 
  • A printed guide
  • A two hour lesson
  • A special price on our featured cocktails


Old Town Social keeps it simple: They're a bar, with really great food. They feature house made, award winning charcuterie and gourmet bar-style food alone with craft beers and cocktails. We'll be sitting in the warm and perfectly staged parlor room where we have our choice of an eclectic mix of cool seating. There's no more appropriate room to gather and embroirder! 

Make sure to sign up and bring friends!
