Cost: $100 + supplies
Skill Level: Experienced Beginner
In this class Abby Langdon of abbydid will take you through every stitch and step to create your very own Fergus the Highland Cow using 3-dimensional embroidery stitches.
Over this 5 week course you will learn 10 different stitches that will bring your piece to life, as we give new and novel spins to some very old hand stitching techniques. By the end you’ll have a new furry friend that you can pet to your heart’s content. Basic embroidery know how is required (if you’re unsure if this is you, just ask!), and is recommended for teenagers and adults.
Class supplies must be purchased from Silk Road Textiles, either in store or through the SRT Online Marketplace. By using our high quality products, you know that you have the right tools and fibers to set you up for success, and we are able to keep our class prices down.
