Keep that Fourth of July celebration going! Come to our annual July potluck dinner and enjoy all the wonderful dishes our guild prepares. The board always has something fun "cooked up" that is always enjoyed by all.
This month we will be exploring Anna Zilboorg’s wonderful world of embroidered knits. This technique creates richly textured knit fabrics and the addition of embroidery for emphasis, color, detail, and even sheen.
We will discuss several types of embroidery stitches and combinations of ribbing, lace, traveling stitches, and more.
“Embroidery stitches are not difficult, It’s just up and down with a thread following.” -Anna Zilboorg from her book “Splendid Apparel”.
Ashley Jackson will be leading this short discussion.
