Description

Lorna has designed and created a number of embroidery projects based on English Country Garden flowers. And now she has incorporated the techniques into her new book. This book will easily earn it’s place on your bookshelf. Plus it will definitely become a firm favourite for beginners and dedicated embroiderers alike.

In this workshop Lorna covers how to create stems for flowers and trees, using just threads. She shows us two techniques –  whipping and overcasting. These produce quite a different effect, the first is whipped over with backstitch or stem stitch, and overcasting covers your threads completely.

She also shares with us the top tip that she always uses a doodle  cloth to practice on before moving on to her precious project – that also allows you to audition thread colour and well as thickness and obviously perfect your stitch.

The other top tip is to use a waste -knot (which is in fact a quilters knot)
