Welcome back to part two in this series! Whether you’re new to the world of metal thread embroidery or are looking to perfect your skills, these instructions will show you how to stitch this whimsical snail project from start to finish. The instructions are written for the beginning to intermediate metal thread student; you can learn more about part one here on the EGA Blog.
A Walk in the Park is part of Summer Sashay, and generously provided here for our blog readers by designer and EGA teacher, Kay Stanis. She notes: Framing up and transferring the design is more complicated than other types of needlework so that’s quite an accomplishment to begin with. Review the procedure with the video on my website. You’ll find it under “techniques.” If you love metal thread embroidery we invite you to explore some of our courses on the technique including our Individual Correspondence Course Introduction to Metal Thread Embroidery with Kay Stanis, an in-depth study of the techniques of metal thread embroidery that will introduce you to the shimmer of real gold and silver on fabric.
