This class is designed to help embroiders through some of the more challenging stitches found in Carolyn Pearce’s Home Sweet Home project. In the class students will work on a sampler, which will enable students practice the more difficult or unusual stitches found in the project. This method allows for Carolyn to see people begin to gain confidence and understand the stitches. Beautiful stitching comes with practice in a supportive setting, making our event ideal.
