How Does Your Garden Grow? Surface Embroidery Class

Teacher: Carol Peao Currier

How Does Your Garden Grow? is a study of basic crewel stitches and techniques. The simple design is worked on crewel linen or linen twill in the student’s choice of colors.

The course outline includes a brief history of crewel embroidery, descriptions of threads, fabrics, and tools, a stitch glossary useful for other projects, plus washing and blocking instructions.

Designed to appeal to beginner stitchers both young and old, the student is encouraged to add or subtract from the design. For example, if a bird is not appealing, the student can put a favorite pet into the embroidery design.
