By Heather Kerley

This workshop introduces beginners to freestyle hand embroidery. In this style, stitches are applied freely, disregarding the weave or structure of the ground cloth. Students learn how to select and prepare fabric using a simple design, ready their hoop, and begin stitching. The class covers several different stitches to achieve various textures and marks, including basic stitch, backstitch, and satin stitch.
