This is a class that I just finished up teaching this week. This was a really fun class, where the student learned to work the embroidery stitches using a variety of threads such as pearl cotton; buttonhole twist; rayon and cotton floss on a fabric base that will be used as needle-case.
Some of the stitches used blended thread to create new colors and textures. The dimensional embroidery stitches that were covered were bullion knot, cast on buttonhole, drizzle, woven, whipped and tatted. Traditional stitches such as the buttonhole, chain stitch, feather stitch, feather stitch leaf, French knot, lazy daisy, pistol stitch and straight stitch were also covered.
There were many hours of stitching involved, but it is well worth the end results!
Happy Stitching to all of my students!
