Our latest online class Passionate Pineapple with teacher Sandie Cormaci-Boles is filled with pulled thread techniques and tips along with some Colonial history. This class can be an introduction or a refresher to pulled thread work. It is a simple and elegant design that shines because of the way the eyelets and satin stitches are executed. Passionate Pineapple will be taught in five lessons.
The model is stitched on 28 count antique white Cashel linen with #8 and #12 perle cotton.
There is a “Petite Practice Pineapple” that we will work on in class. Stitches include: satin stitches, diamond eyelets and buttonhole edging.
