For those with some experience with embroidery, here is a chance to take what you know and build on it. Each week we'll take a couple tried and true embroidery stitches and elevate them to the next level by layering, weaving, wrapping, fringing, and mixing techniques. We'll create a sampler of gorgeous borders framing a mandala. The finished product will be beautiful framed or on a pillow. Students must be comfortable with basic embroidery stitches like back stitch, stem stitch, French knots, and lazy daisies.
Be sure to purchase your fabric and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles, online or in store!
