LEVEL 3 - #08 “ASSISI EMBROIDERY TECHNIQUE"
Student Kit contains: Easy instructions and diagrams, 25ct Evenweave Fabric, #24 Needle, and sufficient threads and embellishments to complete the design.
This technique comes from the town of Assisi in Northern Italy. It is a variation in the use of the basic Cross Stitch. First, the design is outlined using Backstitch or Holbein Stitching. Then, instead of filling the design area with Cross Stitches, the stitcher fills in the background area with a contrasting colour, leaving the design area free of stitches. Designs traditionally used in Assissi Embroidery are usually simple animal and floral motifs.
Design area: 39h x 40w (3.3” x 3.3”)
Cut fabric: 25ct Lugana 6" X 6"
