Hand Embroidery - Taster Day

Hand Embroidery - Taster Day [ADF6100G]: Overview

During this taster session you will have a choice of design to work on that will incorporate the most important basic embroidery stitches. Those with some experience will be encouraged work on a more complex design and develop more stitches. If your design is not completed in the class you will have all the skills needed to complete it at home.

What will we cover?

We will cover preparation techniques for framing up fabric, tracing the design and separating threads. You will be shown how to get started on you design and will explore the embroidery stitches required to complete the design. During the session you will learn the most useful and most commonly used stitches to enable you to gain confidence in embroidery to progress to the next level
