  This class is for students who would like to record their favorite flower in realistic embroidery. Using photographs, illustrations or paintings, each student will learn how to accurately stitch their chosen subject in surface embroidery using the thread of their chose; cotton flosses, silks or crewel wools.  Margaret will assist each student through the drawing and design process.  These designs will then be translated into embroidery on either a black or cream background. If participants prefer, they can bring in an alternate background. Students will learn how to do radial stitching, methods of long and short stitch, shading techniques and how to blend colours and threads.
