This Advanced Class will offer experienced embroidery students the opportunity to study “stumpwork” or dimensional (3-D) embroidery techniques, in the style of world famous Jane Nicholas.

Students should be well versed in the basic stitches such as working away-knots, stripping threads, and will be best served by having taken Cathy Pommett’s Introductory Class.

In this advanced class,  new stitches will include:  long and short stitch or needlepainting, very tight buttonhole stitch and Giourdes Knot

A kit will be provided to each student, however the student will need to have 2 hoops (Cathy will talk about the sizes on the first class) and their own DMC thread.

The teacher will leave a book in the shop so you can see Stumpwork close up.

The class will be held over 4 weeks:  Thursdays, June 14,  21,  28 and July 5.  1 pm to 3 pm. $85.
