Exploring Design and Stitch… Guest Blogger: Catherine Sloan

Level 2 Studies in Design and Experimental Stitch – Class name: Jade

Hand stitch 2 has allowed me to explore both elements of design and stitching. I have come to love running stitch for its flexibility allowing both colour and texture to enhance designs. For me it is a slow meditative stitch that can be done anywhere at any time with easily carried supplies. Exploring photo transfer and embroidery has allowed me to change and enhance my photographs taking them to a different level. Beading was a new experience and likely not one I would have explored without Gail and Penny’s assistance, but I now can see its possibilities for future projects. I am looking forward to continuing to develop my embroidery and design works as I now have a solid foundation of skills to work from. Hand Stitch 2 is a great course from which to build confidence in embroidery.

    These are wonderful and the running stitch in your various pieces adds so much movement to your work.
