Color, Design and Creative Traditional Stitches ….. Guest Blogger: Therese Stein

July 16, 2017

Studies in Design and Experimental Hand Stitch Level 2 – Name: Lisianthus   Blog 2 

When I discovered Gail’s classes, the quality of the student work intimidated me.  I looked for a few years before getting the courage to enroll.  After many years of working on my own and only self taught, these classes are a wonder.  The method of teaching is thorough, professional and involving and never rote.  After completing Level I, I thought it was enough.  But here I am nearly through Level II and still learning.  In addition to using traditional stitches creatively, we learn color and design.  Especially valuable to me is learning about different types of fabric and thread and learning how to dye.  I may not take Level III, but I will continue to take more.
