In this intermediate embroidery class you'll learn: How to stitch a ginkgo brooch using the chain stitch, reversed chain stitch, and double running (or Holbein stitch).

Create a beautifully embroidered brooch with me helping you out every step of the way. 

What you'll learn:

  • How to embroider the chain stitch, the reversed chain stitch, and the double running stitch (aka Holbein stitch). 
  • You'll be adding lots of cool techniques to your creative toolkit that allows you to confidently start future embroidery projects.  like how to separate the threads from six-stranded embroidery floss, without creating a tangled mess. Or how to start and end your thread without tying knots. Or the best length of thread to embroider with, spoiler alert...shorter is better.
  • How to transfer your embroidery design on to light and dark fabrics.
  • How to turn your finished embroidery work into a brooch so you can wear your embroidery artwork all day everyday. Or, because they make great gifts, share your handmade creation with a friend.

Is this the same class as shown on Skillshare?
Yes! 350+ students have taken this class on Skillshare! But because you need a credit card to purchase a Skillshare membership I'm also hosting this online workshop on my own website, therefore it's easier to access the workshop if you don't want to use a credit card or don't own a credit card like many Dutchies (I'm Dutch ;)

If you do own a credit card consider signing up for a free 2-month trial to watch the class

Another reason to host the workshop on my own website is that not everyone wants to sign up for a Skillshare membership. Hosting the workshop on makes it possible to give unlimited access with a one-time payment.
