In an English Country Garden

Instructor: Lorna Bateman of Bateman Embroidery

Class Details

Create your own lush country garden with silk embroidery and a variety of raised and textured stitches. After practicing more than a dozen stitches, you will learn to apply them to Lorna’s exclusive designs to create one or more projects, including a needle case and scissors keeper. Lorna will also show you how to perfectly assemble and beautifully finish your pieces.

Bullions, cast-on stitch, double-sided cast-on stitch and drizzle are among the stitches you will use to create your own unique, 3-D garden. Each piece is treasured as a single project, or you may choose one or more pieces to work on during this three-day class. Designs are printed onto linen/cotton-blend fabric manufactured especially for embroidery, and students will be able to add as much or as little embroidery as desired. In this way you will create pieces that are uniquely your own. Lorna will provide one-on-one, small-group and whole-class instruction to benefit beginners and advanced embroiderers alike.

Class kit includes: Background fabric, variety of needles, hand-dyed perle cotton, silk and cotton organdy, metallic thread, flannel, felt, a pair of Italian-crafted stork scissors for embroidery, charts and detailed directions for stitching and assembly.
