Redwork is a type of stitching, primarily done in red, but also in blue and black, that rose in popularity in the late 1800s. Learn the history of redwork quilts and how this type of embroidery can be used to make beautiful, delicate botanical illustrations. After creating designs based on plants native to their area, students learn how to transfer those designs onto fabric and to use the basic redwork stitches—backstitch, running stitch, stem stitch, and French knots—to create varying line quality. They then make a basic small quilt using their embroideries. A great class for nature lovers, gardeners, and anyone who is new to embroidery.
