Bargello, I don’t know a single stitcher who doesn’t enjoy it and most love it. When you think about it, what’s not to like? You only need to do one stitch. You can easily make color and thread changes to suit your taste. You can stitch it on any mesh of canvas and with any thread.
And it’s usually stressless needlepoint because once you establish the pattern, you can just stitch away.
The possibilities are endless and I’ll be bringing you a whole passel of them in my next 25 Stitches class, 25 Bargello Patterns.
The class is four months long, with monthly email lessons. In the first two lessons the 25 patterns will be covered. In the third lesson we’ll expand on those basic patterns with some variations plus exciting ways to make your own unique designs. Some of the things we’ll cover include:
- Birthday & name Bargello
- Rotating quadrants
- Creating Bargello samplers
- Diagonal Bargello
- Four-way Bargello
- Bargello from a custom curve
- “Interrupted” Bargello
The final lesson is a delightful cityscape Bargello Sampler.
The class is only $27.50 and requires nothing more than your email to participate. Students make their own stitch sampler notebooks recording the patterns to be a permanent reference. The sampler can be stitched on your choice of canvas and colors.
Unlike many other on-line classes, you need nothing special to take this class: no privacy-stealing special accounts, no videos, no required classes, everything comes to your inbox in a format you can read, so you can take the class at your own pace.
I’m so excited about this class because we will explore my favorite needlepoint technique together. If you want to join the fun, just use the button below to register using PayPal or credit card.
