October 23 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

This 2-day class will be held on Saturday 23 October and Sunday 21 November 2021. Attendance on 23 October (Day 1) is essential in order to attend 21 November (Day 2).

Casalguidi is a technique that consists of curves, twists, and especially a heavy Casalguidi Stitch – (Raised Stem Stitch).  All these stitches are worked on a pulled thread background.  The embroidery design must incorporate the Casalguidi Stitch to be called a Casalguidi design.

In this class, we will be learning the basic stitches that are used to create this technique and how to work the thread to achieve all those lovely twists and curves to achieve a 3-dimensional effect.
