Marquise Medley – Day 1

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

This is a two-day class to be held on Tuesday 8 October (Day 1) and Tuesday 29 October (Day 2) and will focus on stitching a sampler, which covers a medley of several counted thread embroidery styles. 

The sampler will highlight techniques often attributed to northern and eastern European countries.  A wide central band of needleweaving is the focus of the piece, with kloster block flowers and motif, a pulled thread motif and even a needlepoint pattern. The design is an adaptation of a design in Hetsie van Wyk’s book, Embroider Now.

Some preparation work is required prior to this 2-day class, consequently, students will need to have knowledge of counted thread embroidery including tacking a grid onto the fabric and working kloster blocks in preparation for cutting.  Alana chose to frame this piece, but it would also make an attractive pillow.
