**THIS IS A FLEX CLASS AND DOES NOT HAVE LIVE MEETINGS** Students will learn a variety of basic embroidery stitches including the backstitch, stem, chain, satin, french knot, lazy daisy, fishbone, and woven wheel stitches. I have created four floral patterns for 5-inch hoops that I will send to enrolled learners. They are welcome to create their own pattern, or use the one I provide. A pattern using a 7-inch hoop, specifically designed to practice stitches will also be provided in the first...
Students will: • Learn a variety of embroidery stitches. • Learn how to incorporate multiple stitches into an embroidery hoop design. • Share experiences with one another through the classroom. • Increase confidence in using embroidery stitches and techniques.
I have been sewing since I was very young because I love making costumes and dressing up. Later, I got involved in embroidery, and I enjoy spending time creating patterns as well as completing projects. I am excited to share this wonderful hobby with youth and create an excitement for them to further their skills.
Embroidery takes time and patience! Although stitches are shown in depth in the videos, students will need to continue working on their own to finish the projects. They are always welcome to go back and watch the video as many times as needed while completing their projects. Learners are encouraged to post weekly on the classroom page.
The supply lists and amounts of thread colors will change each week, depending on the type of embroidery project. If the student's class begins on a Saturday, this information will be sent out on Wednesdays. If their class begins on a Monday, this information will be sent out on Fridays. This will help learners plan and prepare for the upcoming week. I will also include photos of the supplies to make it easier for students to see and gather what they need for class. Upon enrollment, learners will receive a video and message showing the embroidery kit that I use which includes almost everything needed for the classes. The main supplies needed for each class will be: 5-inch embroidery hoop Fabric to embroider on A pencil or other item to trace the pattern onto to the fabric Needle and embroidery thread Scissors (7-inch embroidery hoop is needed to practice the stitches throughout the course)
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be using a needle and scissors for every class. It is very common to accidentally prick yourself with the needle while embroidering so please encourage your students to use caution. A thimble and parental supervision is strongly encouraged to help the learner while sewing.
