One of the embroidery techniques used in my new online class, Fused Art Quilts: Tiny Homes, is repetition of a stitch. Like the cross-stitches, straight stitches, and blanket stitches in the fields above, repeating a stitch builds pattern across the surface of fabric.
And I’m happy to report that Christen Brown, author of the Hand Embroidery Dictionary, agrees with me! Here’s a page from Christen’s new book. It shows how she uses my hand-dyed threads to make netted and laced stitches for patterning on fabric.
Her new book, Hand Embroidery Dictionary, shows diagrams on how to make over 500 embroidery stitches. Detailed illustrations show colorful variations and suggest how you might use the stitches in your artwork.
