Heirloom Sewing Class - Embroidery

Heirloom Sewing stands up to the test of time.  The stitches, if by hand or machine, are worked carefully to last a long time.  The workmanship needs to be done well.  There are some techniques and some methods that will ensure this garment will last through one generation to the next, much less through the first wash!

Embroidery is such a part of Heirloom Sewing.

And to me, the two dominate stitches you should know how to work?

Featherstitching.  Bullion Rosebuds.

In my class "Playing with Lace on an Heirloom Pillow", we will take the time to learn  basic Featherstitching and the Bullion Rosebud.

We will also learn how to do the hand stitched Pinstitch over Applique Cord when attaching lace to fabric.

Your post is beautiful and tugs at my heart. I would so love to be able to attend the SAGA Convention, but it is not to be. Actually to attend a class of yours is a dream of mine. Know that there are many of us due to health, work schedule, or finances that are not able to participate this time. Yet, I believe the art of heirloom sewing is alive and vibrant. Someday , with God's grace I will travel to one of your multi-day workshops. Praise be that day!
