Two Beautiful Embroidery Classes and Saga Retreat!

My embroidered Bullion Garden!
This class is called "Rosebuds for Baby" - Beautiful Bullion Roses.

In this class you will explore just  how lovely the Bullion stitch can be.  

 Bullions stitched in buttons  are such an elegant touch!

You will learn which needle will give you the best results and where to place each bullion wrap (and how many wraps needed) to give you just the desired effect you want.

This is a three hour class created to take you beyond the Basic Bullion as you enter a new world of fabulous Bullion roses.   You don't need to be proficient in Bullions but you must be able to stitch a basic Bullion.

The Other Embroider Class is a full day of Stitching pleasure!
This class is chock full of wonderful embroidery and you have the whole day to relax and learn them.

The class is "Circa 1914 Embroidery Techniques".
It is a much expanded class that was taught several years ago, and great for learning new stitches and perfecting stitches that you know.

These stitches have been popular for more than a century because they are just so... Beautiful!  

We will be stitching the Plain and Fancy Scallop.  You have seen this stitch edging collars and linens for years and it is really a simple technique and very pretty!  

The Satin Leaf and Dot which are great accent stitches.

Eyelets - French Eyelet, Buttonhole Eyelet and the lovely Shaded Eyelet.

Chain Stitch, which can be stitched tiny to use for  writting names or initials in a simple and easy form of Monogram.   You will  find out how to make your Stem/Outline stitch even and beautiful.  Perfect French Knots (no wobble necks allowed on our French Knots here!).  Looped Bullion Daisy, single Featherstitching (my favorite) and I even have a neat tip for the Lazy Daisy stitch.

We will be learning  on practice fabric and many of the stitches will be perfected as we stitch our project -- a sachet  design which comes right from the pages of a vintage Newspaper.

The  sachet design will make a great pocket for a Romper or Dress.  I am already thinking of garments to put it on!!

Roll on, April! The sachet is so sweet, and I'm looking forward to seeing how to trim those scallops so beautifully. Mine are always hairy!
