Intro to Embroidery: Making a Sampler - ONLINE CLASS
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.

Embroidery has a variety of applications, from customizing clothes to creating your own artwork. This class will take you through eight different stitches. With knots, edging, and basics, you will leave with a finished sampler of all you learned in class as well as the tools to continue further.
- cotton embroidery floss (like this)
- a needle (with a big enough eye for your embroidery floss)
- water soluble pen/pencil (like this) - these are great because you can wash the marks off your fabric, but don't panic if you don't have one
- non-stretch fabric (like cotton or muslin)
- and an embroidery hoop 6" or bigger
