This class is suitable for beginners onwards, however some embroidery experience would be helpful.
This beautiful design is inspired by beautiful Winter snowflakes, this Whitework class covers the fundamentals of Whitework and decorative surface stitches with an added touch of sparkle. This design is worked on an even weave white linen, with multiple Whitework threads, DMC’s new Mouline Etoile and Silver Spangles.
This class will teach you a classic Pulled Thread technique. Padded Satin and Satin Stitches. How to make Eyelets as well as Ladder Stitch. Along with all these Whitework techniques you will also learn some basic embroidery stitches such as Stem Stitch, Back Stitch, Split Stitch and Fly Stitch, and finally how to stitch Silver Spangles.
When finished this piece can be mounted into a small embroidery hoop and used as a Christmas decoration.
