Description

While trellises in our garden are often covered with fruit, vegetables or flower, on this class you will stitch the trellising background and use a variety of stitches to incorporate flowers, allowing both the trellis and the flowers to shine.

Some of the stitches you will be using to create your own trellis masterpiece are:  Smyrna, Woven Cross, Upright Cross, Running, Straight and French Knots, and more.

Grab some beautiful threads from your stash and start stitching right away or order one of the two kit options available.

Tips from your teacher

Choosing your threads: Within the garden beds of Hidden Trellises only small amounts of threads are used, so it is an ideal project to ‘have a walk down memory lane’ and look at your stash to see what threads you could work this project with. When looking at our stash of threads it’s lovely to reflect on the project we used some of the threads in, especially if we have given the finished piece to very special people in our lives.

It is perfectly fine to stitch Hidden Trellises with the original threads in the original colors. But if you are looking for a challenge — here it is and have fun with it! The idea is to use up some of your stash and to combine colors that are either your very favorite or colors you would not normally work in.

Here’s an example from one my students, where they used soft lemon, old gold, bright red, mid green, light and mid mauve and lilac for their piece.

Substituting Gumnut Yarns Poppies: Gumnut Yarns Poppies is a silk-wool blend and is stitched in Smyrna stitch to form all the garden bed borders. You could stitch these bed borders with four strands of floss/silk. In the USA Poppies could be substituted with:  Sheep’s Silk Wool by the Thread Gatherer, Silk and Ivory by Brown Paper Packages, and from Rainbow Gallery: Wool fibers -Rainbow Persian, Wool and polyester – Glisten wool and cotton blend, Rainbow Tweed.

Finishing your Trellis: This class includes instructions for completing the stitching of the design which can then be finished however the student prefers. Finishing instructions are not included in this class.
