Learn tips and tricks to making hand stitching enjoyable and meditative. Hand stitches can provide a variety of textures and looks for your work. Learning how to start and stop without knots while using heavier threads, like pearl cotton, can elevate your work. We will practice hand quilting, sashiko, and big stitch techniques. Also discussed will be the effects of different threads, needles, and battings. This class is a great way to start adding hand stitches to your work.
