During my Improvisational Hand Embroidery on Wool classes students are given a book with embroidery stitch directions. But I’m also happy to demonstrate stitches and talk them through the process of acquiring a new stitching skill.
The set of stitches above are from one of those demonstrations showing a closed Blanket Stitch, Bullion Knots, and Couching. Could this sampler of stitches be used as a jumping off point for a new design? Stay tuned and we’ll see if I can turn those random stitches into something.
