Creative Sampler

Instructor: Lorna Bateman of Bateman Embroidery

Class Details

Stitched with a variety of 3-D stitches, crewel embroidery, stumpwork, silk flowers, ribbon work and beading, this fine needlework sampler is an interpretation of the myriad flowers, creatures and insects found in the enchanting English countryside during springtime. Stitched on a linen/cotton blend fabric manufactured specifically for embroidery, this sampler uses several of Lorna’s favorite techniques. More than two dozen stitches are employed in the sampler, including bullions, herringbones, tufting or turkey stitch, beaded Roumanian, Palestrina and lazy daisy tipped bullion. This class is recommended for experienced embroiderers.

Class kit includes: Chenille; crewel, milliners and beading needles; plus a selection of hand-dyed ribbons, cotton, perles and silk threads. A selection of beads, soft kid leather, felt and pelmet vilene are also included, plus charts and detailed directions for stitching and assembly.
