Exploring more stitches

Saturday, April 22, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

This class is an extension of the free Embroidery Basics class offered to new members and part of the Guild’s Essential Embroidery Skills course.

This delightful design was inspired by a copse of four trees, which the Tutor sketched and then expanded on to construct a creative pattern. The project can be stitched a number of ways (including with full detail as shown here, to stitching only the four original trees, or to using a different colour palette). The Tutor will outline the options for students at the start of the class. There is sure to be one to suit everyone’s tastes and abilities.  If opting for a colour palette different to that shown, bring your own threads.
