Finishing with Flair
Learn techniques for finishing your needlework!
Finishing with Flair with Marion Scoular is a notebook Group Correspondence Course covering three useful techniques for finishing needlework and instructions for lacing needlework for framing.
The three techniques are how to mitre a corner and do simple hemstitching; how to stitch a picot edge; and how to stitch a corded edging. Do the finishing yourself, save money, and know that the work is done well. Little expense is involved as students may use scraps from their collection.
