For weeks 3 and 4 of my class, the students began some cross-stitch for the first time, using squared paper to make up their own designs for a bookmark using Aida fabric. We continued this topic into Week 3, moving on to learn how to stitch into any fabric using ‘waste’ fabric stabiliser, then pulling out the stabiliser strand by strand afterwards.
Spaces are still available in the class if you’d like to join us for the remaining six weeks. We’ll be completing our cross stitch basics then moving on to other forms of hand embroidery. Check out the PACC website.
