Class Description: There are a number of padding techniques used in embroidery that can help to create more dynamic pieces, providing an element of shape and depth as well as structural support for certain kinds of stitches. In this class we will cover padding using stitches, felt, card, string, batting, and wadding. This class will also cover couching. Couching is a technique where one thread is used to hold down another thread on top of the fabric. We will cover variations on couching such as trailing, applique edging, and decorative couching.

Equipment Needed: All materials are supplied; you may bring your own sewing kit if you like.
