Watercolor Stitchery Hand Embroidery Hoop Art

Supplies Students Need To Bring

8”, 9” or 10” wooden embroidery hoop (depending on how ambitious you like to work)

Favorite color palette of 8-10 colors of embroidery floss (any brand like DMC, Wonderfil, Cosmo, etc.)

1 spool of 12wt sewing thread in ivory or gray

Small, sandwich size Ziploc bag of textured yarn and fiber scraps (whatever you have, like lace, ribbon, roving, colorful trims)

Small thread scissors or embroidery snips and a fabric glue stick.

Bring your own watercolor paints if you have them with you.  (Instructor will have watercolor paints if you need to use them.)  Brushes and fabric provided.

 

“De-stash” and share optional: If you are so inclined, bring your extra yarns, lace, trims, etc. to share with your classmates.  A great way to make your “trash” (well, it’s never trash!!) someone’s treasure!
