Full Metal Flowers is a sampler of twenty-four distinct Elizabethan surface stitches. Worked in six shades of metallic passing thread on high-count linen fabric, the student chooses either a square shape suitable for framing or a triangle similar to a 16th century forehead cloth. Uncommon stitches are worked first on large-mesh canvas to learn the thread’s path before being worked at the final size.

We welcome new, and intermediate, stitchers to enjoy the journey of Japanese embroidery through Crane with Temari Balls. Basic techniques such as weft, vertical, horizontal, diagonal, separated layers, and some couching techniques will be taught. Several advanced techniques, such as realistic effects, also will be covered. Participants may proceed to intermediate - advanced level stitching on other areas of this design if they have finished early and wish a further challenge.
