Materials for this program

By Heather Kerley

In this workshop, beginners are introduced to freestyle hand embroidery. In this style, the 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, such as basic stitch, backstitch, and satin stitch.
