Skill level: Great for beginners or anyone wishing to brush up on their embroidery skills
Class Description: This class is part of our 6-part Introduction to Embroidery Series. The subject of this class is “Animal.” You will have the choice of stitching a traditional stag or a contemporary giraffe. This class will cover the following stitches:
- satin (padded)
- turkey rug stitch
- chain and detached chain stitch
- feather stitch
- French knot
- eyelet filling
- rope stitch
Our Introduction to Embroidery Series will introduce you to foundational embroidery skills such as how to thread the needle, how to start and end your threads, and how to use an embroidery hoop. You will have the opportunity to practice stitching with four different kinds of threads: wool, cotton, metallic, and silk. In addition to the fabric for the finished design, you will be provided with a “doodle cloth” for practicing your embroidery stitches.
This series consists of six different classes. Each one has a different subject matter (i.e. Animal, Flower, Building) and two design options, a traditional design or a contemporary design. You can take as many of the classes as you like and in any order that you wish. You will learn eight different stitches in each class, or a total of 48 stitches if you take all six!
