This 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 - back stitch, buttonhole stitch, French knots and more - while working on a fresh floral pattern 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!
