Alma Garner

Print Info

Alma was assisted in the Spring 2015 class by Sylvia Boyden, herself a fine embroiderer.

When Alma Garner retired from teaching in elementary school, she took up teaching embroidery, and she has been doing that now for over 15 years. Alma is a member of the Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery International Guild. She has participated in one of the Guild’s seminars held in Portland, Oregon, and has learned many stitching techniques from teachers there.  Alma also has experience with cotton floss and has done some crewel.

Alma currently holds a weekly Wednesday embroidery class at the United Methodist Church in Canton (new members welcome!).
