Add a new dimension to your embroidery skills by learning to create 3-D hair. I'll show you three types of stitches to create the hair, provide a handy chart for which DMC colors create the most realistic-looking locks, and will demonstrate a few styling tips. Preparing for this class reminds me of when I learned how to French braid with Barbies!
How is needlepoint different from cross stitch? How can I transfer an image onto fabric to stitch? Why do I need an embroidery hoop? Get the answers to these questions and more during this 2 hour introductory embroidery class. Learn 4 basic stitches (running, back, satin and a French knot) and by the end of class you will be well on your way to creating a piece of hoop art! All materials included, no experience necessary.
