Decorative Stitches with @Strawberryneedlepoint
Beginning Decorative Stitches (3 hours):
Via Zoom or in the Store
The topic of this workshop is the foundations of decorative stitches, focusing on several vertical stitches and diagonal stitches on an exclusive canvas by Jenny Henry Designs. If you are wanting to branch out from continental and basketweave to add some flair and pizazz to your canvas, but unsure of how to select stitches and which threads pair well, this is a helpful class for you. Each stitch will be taught and practiced with instructions on the proper needle to use and way to anchor into the canvas. We will also discuss the helpful tools and notions to use to allow the thread to enhance and compliment the canvas. In addition to learning basic decorative stitches, we will also learn how to read the patterns, determine how to compensate, and the best way to start the next row (all of which can be tricky!).
