Young Embroiderers 10th April 2012

Young designers at work
We had a brilliant time at the Young Embroiderers meeting on Tuesday  as Jordan Hargreaves and Michele Friswell who are  embroidery students from MMU came to our meeting to show us contemporary hand stitching techniques.. We started off by creating an unique surface to stitch into using 'Di- Stix' fabric crayons. These can be used either by drawing a design onto paper and transferring it to the fabric by ironing or cna be used directly onto the fabric.

The finished results- some lovely cushions
 We then used a variety of hand- stitching techniques to decorate the work which we later made into cushions .
We got some lovely results
As you can see the the results were stunning!
