About Bargello and Design
Bargello and Design is a course designed for intermediate and advanced stitchers who want to create their own square Bargello samplers. The class focus is to design a sampler, and Bargello is the type of canvas embroidery used in the design. If individuals desire, they can use Bargello patterns not included in the text for parts of the design. The text will provide a structure for creating a square sampler, but the stitcher will make decisions such as what threads and colors to use, whether or not to use spacers or corner motifs, and which patterns and background stitches to include in the sampler.
