I have developed a new embroidery class for Trailer Stash Fabrics. It’s based on Kelly Fletcher’s embroidery pattern. You can find it here.Here’s a close-up of “Wild Grasses.” It was challenging but I really enjoyed it.A wider shot.I developed a “stitch book” to teach the stitches necessary to do the piece. Practice in the stitch book and then work the big piece.Here are some sweet granitos.
The blanket stitch page.
I have taught the class several times. It’s working out nicely. Students go home with lots of threads dangling. Ha!
We start out with chain, back and stem stitches and just keep moving forward!
We have even learned to make the elusive bullion knots!
Here’s a cast-on stitch.
More extremely good looking bullions!
The resurgence of embroidery is exciting. This beautiful Alison Glass piece belongs to Diana.
Here’s another piece from Diana.
I’ll be teaching “The Stitchbook” at Trailer Stash Fabrics in November. I’m planning on adding a night/weekend class before the end of the year. Interested? Let me know!
