Stitches and Threads

This is a program/workshop to learn the various Brazilian Embroidery stitches made with the wonderful Z twist rayon threads.

Participants are welcome to bring crazy quilt blocks, appliquéd blocks or other designs on which they wish to embellish with embroidery.

This is a sample from an appliquéd quilt that I embellished.
