This beautiful project was designed by Nicola, specifically to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Royal School of Needlework in 2022.
Myrtle Blossom is inspired by a watercolour held in the school’s archive, painted by artist Mary Gemmell who worked as a designer for the school in the 1870s.
Aimed at intermediate to advanced embroiderers, the project features Crewel Work and Surface Stitches, including Split Stitch, Long and Short Shading, Satin Stitch, Stem Stitch, Chain Stitch, Couching, French Knots and Velvet Stitch.
Whipped Back Stitch is a focal stitch in the design and has been sponsored by Nicola in the RSN Stitch Bank.
Myrtle Blossom'has been created on linen twill with Appletons Crewel Wool, DMC perle and stranded cotton, Au Ver à Soie and Kreinik metallic threads.
There will be plenty of opportunity during the class to ask the Tutor questions.
The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
All the stitches covered in this class and more can be found on the RSN Stitchbank.
