Learn how to prepare fabric with a simple design, then ready a hoop and begin stitching. The class covers the basic stitch, backstitch, and satin stitch, as well as instruction in how to add embellishments such as beads and French knots. Conclude by cutting out the patch and attaching it with no-sew adhesive or with stitches.
