Beginning Counted Cross Stitch

cross stitchThis is not your ordinary X-Stitch class. Come learn how to stitch on linen, do counted thread X-Stitch, and experience in-hand embroidery.  Enjoy a new connection with fabric and fiber as you build your village on lovely Lugana Linen.
Even though you may have done X-Stitch in the past, in this class you will gain knowledge of unique tricks that will make your piece extra special. The class will begin by stitching a Bakery; you will learn how to travel with your stitches, to railroad your threads, place embellishments, and add beads that sit in the cradle.  If these X-Stitch terms sound new to you, then join this class to learn all about them.

You will also have access to an additional 40 free patterns of village buildings to add to your piece or for future pieces. This class is taught as an In-Hand Embroidery experience; feel free to bring an embroidery hoop if you prefer, while being open to giving a new method a try.

Time permitting, your instructor will demonstrate some specialty embroidery stitches that will add dimension and interest to your piece.
