Embroidery on Knits
Friday, September 21, 2018
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Hand embroidery is the perfect complement to hand knitting. With a little help from your tapestry needle, simple projects become splendid, and the beauties of complex work are enhanced and revealed in new and exciting ways. In this introductory-level class, students will learn basic (but lovely) line, fill, knot, and motif stitches, and how to vary and combine them for different effects. We will also discuss the selection of materials, planning designs, transferring patterns, and the care of finished work. No prior embroidery experience is necessary—if you can work with two needles, you can work with one!
