I've been working on preparing the content for my upcoming day long retreats here at the farm. One of my classes is called Crewel Embroidery. This is the sampler the students will be working on. It is sized to be turned into a zippered bag or a pillow. The fabric is 100% linen and all stitching is done in wool thread.
You probably all know that I teach an on-line class called Stitch It With Wool: Crewel Embroidery on the Craftsy.com website. There's been a nice response so far. Here's the link to the Craftsy.com class. My website has also been updated to include embroidery supplies along with my PDF patterns. Check them out here.
The Crewel Embroidery Retreat here at the farm will feature all new stitches - above and beyond any of the stitches you would learn on the on-line class. There are 18 new stitches in the sampler shown above. Depending on the speed of the class participants, we will work through as many as possible. If you are getting into the Crewel Embroidery Class on-line or just want to learn in person, this will be a great class. All supplies are included and other supplies will be available for sale here.
