Word of the Year Embroidery Kit

Make.Do. exists to make creativity accessible and affordable. That’s why we offer Pay-What-You-Can classes and kits.


Choosing a “word of the year” is a good way to be intentional about how you want to approach the upcoming months. This hand embroidery craft gives you the opportunity to spend a couple of hours reflecting on your word while you stitch.

Already have your word for 2021? We’ll hand letter a custom template for you. Don’t have an “official” word of the year? No problem, feel free to pick one from our sample collection. Either way, leave your word in the “Order Notes” section on the checkout page.
