Embroidery for Beginners with Carina Envoldsen-Harris
The class is a fun and colourful introduction to hand embroidery that is designed for beginners or those who want a refresher. You will start by learning the tools of the craft, how to use a hoop and how to transfer a pattern. Next, we'll explore a selection of stitches - running stitch, back stitch, stem stitch, French knots and more - by creating a sweet modern sampler designed by Carina. You'll leave with everything you need to know to complete your sampler at home and the confidence to try your next embroidery pattern independently!
