Having fun with the classic art of counted cross stitch & embroidery – letting our inner DIY out!
Cross-stitch is a form of sewing and a popular form of counted-thread embroidery in which X-shaped stitches in a tiled like pattern are used to form a picture. The person counts the threads on a piece of even weave fabric in each direction so that the stitches are of uniform size and appearance.
Embroidery is the method used for decorating fabrics with a needle and a thread. Embroidery styles and techniques vary greatly. We will be learning free style or “surface embroidery”. This decorative stitching technique, with its varied stitches, is worked independent from the fabrics weave allowing you to embroider any design, realistic or abstract onto any fabric you choose. Surface Embroidery offers you the greatest versatility to create beautiful designs.
