Wool Stitching Anyone?

threadskeinsThe last few weeks of my life have been spent dyeing. Every day I dye a variety of thread colorways and sizes for stitching. This thread has a specific destination, my new class called Improvisational Hand Embroidery on Wool.

wool2In this class students make original designs and learn about the joy of hand embroidery on wool. There is a kit with boiled wool, thread, and needles. But you do the design work¬† so each piece has different shapes and colors.¬† I’ll be teaching Improvisational Hand Embroidery on Wool for the first time at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, CA on October 14. Hope to see you there!

  1. This sounds like a fun class. When I looked at the description of the class and the kit that is available, it said you supply thread and needles. Does it take a needle different from the embroidery needle to do the work?

    • No, we use the same embroidery needle that you use with cotton fabric, a size 3 or 4 embroidery needle and a size 8 pearl cotton thread.
