Stitch Play! Mid-February to Mid-March Zoom Class with Julie B. Booth

Using adjectives to describe stitch quality: Chain Stitch by Julie B. Booth

What is Stitch Play? 

It's a concept I initially developed in 2020 as a lesson for the TextileArtist.org Stitch Club. Originally conceived as a way to play with Buttonhole/Blanket stitch by randomly choosing from a list of adjectives to describe stitch character and format, I further developed the class in 2021 into a multi-session Zoom course. I'm excited to be offering this Zoom course once again!

Playing with stitch tension to create dimension by Julie B. Booth

In this four-session Zoom class, you will explore the potential of hand stitches through a series of stitching "games" that are designed to get you thinking about stitching in new ways. Each class session focuses on a playful approach using concepts such as maps, wordplay, random choices, stitch combos and stitching the "wrong" way. Along the way, you will develop your own vocabulary of stitch variations to use in future stitched work.
