Saturday, September 30th 10 AM to 12:30 PM

Ready to stitch outside of the embroidery hoop? In this class, you'll practice the techniques and skills needed to stitch successfully on paper! This class is open to students who attended the original "A Stitch in Time" class at Handiwork as well as those who have some basic embroidery experience already.

If you can thread a needle with embroidery floss and execute a few basic stitches such as back stitch, chain stitch, and stem stitch, then come learn how to do all of that and much more on paper.

In this session, we'll review the basic techniques specific to paper embroidery and complete a paper stitch sampler covering 5-6 more advanced stitches and stitch combinations.

Those students who are continuing on from 'A Stitch in Time' can start a new postcard embroidery or continue working on their original with Robert's help and advice. New students will begin their own postcard embroidery with support in designing and starting the stitching. You'll go home with the skills needed to continue exploring paper embroidery on your own!

Audience: Adults

Skill level: Some experience with basic embroidery stitches
