What kind of stitches confuse needlepointers? Open stitches. There are many ways to make open stitches and techniques that create them. In this email, we’ll explore them all.
They will be the basis of this year’s first 25 Stitches class, beginning May 15, 2018. Plus you’ll get a lovely stitch sampler, similar to the one pictured here, to try out your stitches.
The classes are email based with monthly lessons, with four in this class. The first class explores open stitch techniques and ways you can make the stitches you know be open.The second two months of each class cover the stitches. These lessons come in a great notebook format that makes it easy to create your own reference of stitches. The fourth class includes directions for the sampler. Everything is sent to you as a PDF attachment to your email.
The stitches will include traditional stitches done as open stitches, open needlepoint stitches, darning patterns, pulled canvas, and Blackwork.
This format makes it so easy to take the classes, you don’t need to join any groups or buy special software. You can take it on your own schedule.
