Jacobean crewel embroidery is stitched with wool thread on lined twill. This beginner workshop is perfect for those interested in learning basic and frequently used stitches in crewel.   Work in a sampler format to learn various trellis stitches, knots, cross, and chain. These stitches provide a good introduction and foundation for crewel, and can be applied to many other types of embroidery and future crewel design classes.

Pair this class with Intro to Crewel: Burden, Laid, and Battlement on November 9 for a comprehensive beginning to Jacobean crewelwork and design! Register for both classes and get $10 off your purchase! Use coupon code crewel at checkout.
