What you'll learn in this embroidery class:

This class is part of our 6-part Introduction to Embroidery Series. The subject of this class is “Insect.” You will have the choice of stitching traditional bees or modern beetles. 

This class will cover the following stitches:

  • laid work
  • whipped wheel
  • couching
  • buttonhole stitch
  • bullion knot
  • buttonhole bar
  • ermine filling
  • whipped backstitch

Our Introduction to Embroidery Series will introduce you to foundational embroidery skills such as how to thread the needle, how to start and end your threads, and how to use an embroidery hoop. You will have the opportunity to practice stitching with four different kinds of threads: wool, cotton, metallic, and silk. In addition to the fabric for the finished design, you will be provided with a “doodle cloth” for practicing your embroidery stitches. 

This series consists of six different classes. Each one has a different subject matter (i.e. Animal, Flower, Building) and two design options, a traditional design or a contemporary design. You can take as many of the classes as you like and in any order that you wish. You will learn eight different stitches in each class, or a total of 48 stitches if you take all six!

Kit Contents: 

  • needles
  • silk fabric
  • threads (cotton, wool, silk, metallic)

Equipment Needed: All materials will be mailed to you prior to the start of class; you will need to supply your own scissors

This class is great for beginners or anyone wishing to brush up on their embroidery skills

Lauren was great, loved hearing about her training and experience. Time just went so quickly, it was all spent on the stitches (to be expected in a beginner class, I suppose). Would have loved to start on the actual project.
