Beginning Wool Embellishment
Jun 13, 2020 1:00PM—Jun 21, 2020 2:00PM
Wool applique’ is fun whether your design is modern or primitive! Give this portable and easy textile technique a try in Diana Quinn’s 4-session (1 hr on June 13, 14, 20, and 21) beginner class. You’ll practice several embellishment stitches – backstitch, bullion knot, chain stitch, fly and closed fly stitch, french knot, wheel stitch, whip stitch, and whipped woven circle – while attaching wool circles to a wool background. Along the way, you’ll learn about the various needles and threads that will make your projects “pop.” Then, after the class, turn your embellished piece into a pincushion or small pillow.
