Suitable for the beginner and the more experienced.
Suggested materials list sent upon registration.
Join a group of like minded individuals with a love of stitch and handling cloth.
''Studies in Stitch''. Cross stitch, bullion knots, French knots, applique, padded applique, cutwork, half cutwork, beads, sequins, corded knots and on and on.
Take a stitch, take a process and develop it in as many ways as you can.
Cross stitch a pillow top, then cross stitch a button, cross stitch a binding.......
Embroider bullion knots with thread, add beads, stitch a pocket top with beaded knots and plain knots, stitch a button with bullion loops and sequins.......and much, much more.
Using traditional embroidery process and stitch we will create a collection of embroidered items, pockets, pin pillows, buttons, swatches, fabric panels, patchwork pieces......
For example, we may create a cross stitch pin pillow and six accompanying hand embroidered cross stitch buttons.
Bullion knots could be used to embroider a small, delicate pocket with bullion knot button fastenings along with an accompanying beaded bullion knot pin pillow.
A fabric swatch embellished with applique motifs could be complimented by a selection of hexagon pieces worked in a similar manner.
Collections, all related through process and stitch.
The size of your final collection, the number of stitch variations you use is entirely up to you. It is perfectly OK for you to pursue one idea through to the completion of our 12 weeks. There are no set tasks, nothing is compulsory.
Please allow 24 hours from registration for receipt of a welcome mail containing an overview of suggested equipment.
