Taught by Candace Hicks
Embroidery can add an array of elements to a project on fabric or paper, and is a great addition for your book arts tool kit. During this workshop you will create an embroidery sampler that will include text and imagery. The workshop will cover techniques for transferring designs, basic stitches, and tips for designing layouts. In addition, you will discuss the history and significance of the sampler including recent iterations and interpretations. No prior sewing or embroidery experience is necessary.
