Join me for an adventure in texture. Snow on the Mountain, a show towel, combines pulled, drawn and counted thread embroidery. The smooth silkiness of satin stitch contrasts with the roughness of feather stitch and the openness of drawn thread. Students will learn to pull and withdraw threads, secure open areas with hemstitching and cut a buttonholed edge. Working on a bookmark sized sampler students will complete each row of the design in class. Later they may individualize their towels with any desired design changes.
