Catch Up Again! Fall Hand Stitching: Texture

Gretchen K.

I'm catching my breath again and trying to catch up! I want to share with you these amazing stitched works by the students in my fall Hand Stitching class. You've already seen examples of Line and Pattern. The third session focused on Texture and stitches such as French and Bullion Knots, Straight Stitch (used for seeding), a self couching stitch and composite stitches such as Raised Stem and Surface Darning. We also tried lacing and wrapping stitches for texture. I challenged students to design some of their own stitches. Some students continued to add texture stitches to works they started in one of the previous two sessions. I hope you enjoy seeing each student's unique take on Texture. Next blog post: Layers.

  1. These are all wonderful - so much so that I find it hard to pick out favourites, though there are a few that especially caught my eye. I loved the drama in Gretchen K's first piece and great texture and soft colours of the fourth one by Maria S. My favourites of all, though were the group by Marine W - so subtle and that grey and white ...!!!
