Slowing down for a day of hand stitching. Using a ground of woollen blanket, you will create a stitched grid of fabric scraps. you will then start filling your patches with hand stitch. I will show you some of my favourite embroidery stitches and we will have all my old embroidery stitch books on hand for inspiration.
I will not be showing you neat, perfect embroidery stitching – I will be showing you scrappy, sprawly embroidery stitching, but you can be as neat as you wish.
You will stitch some text and typewritten labels can be added.
You probably won’t finish your sampler during the workshop but I will give you any guidance that you may need on finishing it off at home.
I will provide all the materials that you need.
You don’t need to have any experience to enjoy this day but you do need patience and a desire to hand stitch!
