Registration for Creativation University is open! Over the next several weeks, we’ll introduce you to some of our workshop teachers and seminar speakers so you can learn what to expect from taking their live classes in Phoenix this January.
This week, meet Eloise Wagers!
Hand embroidery is the perfect solution for vintage and modern home décor! Join Eloise in her workshop, W404: Hand Embroidery for Home Décor, to learn how to build a great embroidery program for your shop using Clover Needlecraft’s markers, hoops, needles, threaders and scissors.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a former public junior high school and adult education teacher. Since, I’ve spent many years employed with various companies in the craft industry in management and sales. I love sharing my knowledge and the importance of learning crafts for our well-being. Garment sewing and knitting are my favorite pastime activities, along with a pursuit of fashion forward trends.
In a few words, tell us about the education session you’re teaching at Creativation.
Embroidery stitches are fun to do and create unique designs. With so many threads and yarns in a myriad of colors and textures, why not use these talents to embellish items for your home? There is something gratifying and relaxing about hand stitching!
Who and why should someone attend your session?
Anyone who would like to learn or relearn some basic embroidery stitches in order to add artistic touches to projects for home environment enjoyment.
What are you looking forward to the most at Creativation in Phoenix?
I’m looking forward to see new products and tools that have been developed for crafts and get inspiration for new projects. The booths are always great to visit and see companies’ complete product offerings as well as meet with their personnel.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the opportunity to learn, share my knowledge and inspire others to enjoy the benefits of developing fun, creative projects.
What do you love most about the creative industry?
There is always some new tool or product that I have to try! I love getting new ideas for future projects, too, but most of all, I love the opportunity to mingle with my industry peers, friends and colleagues!
