Word Embroidery

USD $ 95.79

Show your love in words – stitched from your hands to their heart.

Stitching a special word, name or phrase adds heartfelt sentiment to a piece, making it truly yours or sincerely touching for that special someone.

In this workshop, you will learn how to beautifully embroider words on linen so you can create the most treasured keepsakes.

Create napkins to grace your family table, embellish little handmade toys or clothing, or simply handcraft sentiments that let others know what is in your heart.

Easily learn to master essential embroidery stitches so you can adorn beautiful pieces with words, names or sayings that mean so much.

Embroidery is meditative and therapeutic and can help improve your mental and emotional health.  An exceptional time-honoured art, it continues to grow in wonderfully creative ways.

Please know that a little hand-stitching or embroidery experience will be required for this class.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In this workshop you will embroider a linen sampler, focussing on:

  • how to begin and end your work on an heirloom piece,
  • how to beautifully embroider curved lines in various sizes using backstitch and stem stitch (and French knots if required),
  • how to use soluble design transfer,
  • show to perfect your stitching on 2 words so you can go on to create your own bespoke treasures,
  • then take 2 extra words home for additional stitching practice or to use on your next project.

 

All you need for the class is included for you.

Whether you’re fairly new to stitching or already know your way around a needle, our CWA handicraft award winner, Sil, will take you through all the steps and tips to get you stitching with joy and confidence.
