What you'll learn in this embroidery class:

There are a number of padding techniques used in embroidery that can help to create more dynamic pieces, providing an element of shape and depth as well as structural support for certain kinds of stitches. In this class we will cover padding using stitches, felt, card, string, batting, and wadding. This class will also cover couching. Couching is a technique where one thread is used to hold down another thread on top of the fabric. We will cover variations on couching such as trailing, applique edging, and decorative couching.

Equipment Needed:  This class is demonstration based and you do not need to bring anything with you. However, if you have a project that you have questions about, you can bring that in to discuss with the instructor.
