Embroidery for Clothing
Taught by Rhiannon Platt
Rhiannon Platt is at least third generation fiber artist. Raised by seamstresses, crocheters, and fiber artists of all kinds, she picked up her first pair of needles over a decade ago. Since her first scarf, Rhiannon has gone on to fabricate for Lion Brand Yarn, Nathan Vincent, Olek, Jeila Gueramian, Londonkaye, and Levi’s. In between commissions, she finds time to write patterns and make endless sweaters.

Breathe new life into your old clothes with embroidery or rework a great Goodwill find. You'll learn how to make your clothes one-of-a-kind through embroidery. In addition to reworking clothes, students will learn how to create depth in their work with a variety of techniques, including shading, floss thickness, and stitch choice.
Please bring in a non-stretch garment (button-ups usually work well).
Prerequisites: You should be comfortable with the backstitch, french knot, and stem stitch. To familiarize yourself with these stitches before class, check out Needle n Thread for excellent tutorials.
