Taught by Rebecca Ringquist
Master embroiderer and fine artist, Rebecca Ringuist, shares 31 days of stitches in our first ever Daily Embroidery Challenge. Using her “Drawing Stitches” sampler as a basis, Rebecca’s embroidery style is vibrant, original, and simple enough for all skill levels to follow along. You’ll start with basic stitches, then move on to groups of stitches that create textural effects, like confetti, fancy chains, zigzags, flowers, and filling stitches. Each day, you’ll expand your knowledge of embroidery and build on techniques to combine elements that look complex but are easy to execute. Best of all, at the end of the month not only will you have learned loads of new techniques, but you’ll also have a finished sampler!
Learn how to:
  • Hand-sew 31 embroidery stitches
  • Combine stitches to create new textures and background stitches
  • Work with a variety of embroidery threads and needles
 
What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow class teaching 31 different types of embroidery stitches – at the end of the month, you’ll have a finished sampler!
  • 31 HD video lessons you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Itemized supply list
  • Step-by-step instruction by expert instructor Rebecca Ringquist
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students
