This course is designed to teach the beginning Stumpwork student the basic techniques of this style of embroidery.
You will learn how to prepare fabrics for stitching, transfer a pattern to the fabric, set up a hoop, stitch, cut out and attach detachable elements, stitch the necessary surface embroidery and mount the project correctly. A small picture of a Monarch butterfly on a milkweed flower is the finished project.
This course encourages you to continue your study of Stumpwork by teaching skills at the intermediate level. It assumes knowledge of the basic skills.
In a design of poppy flowers, a bud, and leaves along with a chickadee and inchworm, detached elements of an increasing complexity are taught.
