Buttonhole Stitch Rules *NEW*


This deceptively simple embroidery is not just for edging your blankets or handkerchiefs. Contemporary fiber artists have been bringing it to new levels of surface design, color, texture and form. Start with sampling many of the stitch variations with different thread weights and design scales. Next experiment with wire and other alternative materials to create 3D structures. All levels welcome. Limit 8 students
