Class Experience

Students will learn the 10 most common stitches, eight fairly easy, two a little more complicated, but not difficult. They will learn good basic techniques. The project is an easy one for a beginner, with a casual heart shape that is very forgiving. Nothing is perfectly symmetrical about my design, but it is contemporary and cute, so their work will look great, no matter how well they stitch. A first project should be something that looks cute no matter what their skill level.
Finishing rows that they didn't finish in class.

The pattern uploaded in the class needs to be printed out. Follow the video instructions for copying the pattern onto the fabric. 5 to 7 colors of DMC embroidery floss. I used a knock off floss that I had, I can't even remember where I got it. When I ran it under cold water to get rid of the pencil marks (I was still trying to establish the pattern) the color ran. I used to think it doesn't matter, but evidently, quality matters. :) Some medium weight fabric with a definite weave. Linen or something linen-like is good. Don't get cross-stitch fabric, it won't look as good, or work as well, because embroidery stitches don't always fall in the pre-determined holes that you get with cross-stitch fabric. They will need two pieces about 16 inches square. One to do the embroidery, and one to line the back when they're done. A 10-inch embroidery hoop. A mixed package of embroidery needles. About 10 to 12 inches of ribbon for a bow and for hanging. Sharp scissors. Small snipping scissors are nice, but not necessary.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will end up with a cute heart-motif sampler to hang on their wall.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents will just need to make sure their student has the right supplies and can thread the needle. Sometimes with embroidery, threading the needle can be a challenge. Make sure the needle eye is big enough for six strands of embroidery floss, but not too big that it can't make it through the fabric easily. I recommend getting a mixed pack of embroidery needles so they have choices. Also, make sure the fabric is not too flimsy. That makes for a frustrated sewer. A medium weight linen weave is a good choice.
