Our Metropolitan Region will be having the online class Delphiniums with Merrilyn Heazlewood as their next Region educational event. This online class will begin January 2, 2019 with a total of three lessons, each two weeks apart.
About the Class
Delphiniums is an intermediate counted canvas design with silk ribbon embroidery, 5 ½” square. Silk ribbon Delphiniums standing tall and proud are the focal point of this piece. French knots worked with silk ribbon allow the flowers to form very quickly; surrounding garden beds are overflowing and the freshly mowed manicured lawns glisten. More than ten needlepoint stitches are incorporated into the design, including flower, rice, upright cross, long armed cross, cross, French knots and lazy daisy. The design is stitched on 18 count canvas and uses Perle #5, wool, silk ribbon and beads.
