Intro to Blackwork Embroidery • January 21

, ,

Thursday, January 21, 1 – 4 pm

Karen Weiberg

Blackwork, thought to having originated in Spain, is a counted thread embroidery that typically looks the same on the back and front.  And yes, it is done in black thread!  There are a wide variety stitches to explore once you get the basics down, so join us to learn four stitches in this first introductory class.  Leave the class with a sampler and a new technique to explore further on your own!

This class is identical to the previous class, Blackwork Embroidery: Stitching, but is three hours instead of four.

Materials fee $10, payable to instructor.  **See supply list of items to bring to class**

Instructor Bio:

Karen Weiberg began sewing and embroidering at age 7, exploring the textile arts through 4-H. Discovering counted thread embroidery fulfilled the need for her stitches to be exactly the same length. As an instructor, designer, fabric store manager, and yarn shop owner, Weiberg taught and helped customers with every kind of needlework for over 25 years. She continues to enrich her textile discoveries and was fortunate to have an excellent teacher share Fez embroidery during the 2017 Textile Center tour to Morocco. She is a member of Textile Center, our Athena Society, a library volunteer, and a member of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota.
