Hand embroidery is an ancient variety of needlework. In embroidery, sewers create pictures by stitching some material on to a layer of another material usually a woven fabric such as linen. Most embroiderers stitch with stranded floss or wool. Modern embroidery artists also work on many non-traditional materials such as metal, plastic, and they use things like wire and rope. This beginning hand embroidery class will cover thirteen essential stitches that every embroiderer needs to know. After you learn these stitches, you will be well on your way to being able to complete a kit or make your original designs. We will use a six strand DMC embroidery floss on an even weave fabric. The primary stitches you will learn are: back stitch, running stitch, stem stitch, French knot, basic satin stitch, fern stitch, chain stitch, seed stitch, split stitch, detached chain stitch, v stitch, blanket stitch, and couching stitch.
