LEVEL 2 - #04 “STEM STITCH"
Student Kit contains: Easy instructions and diagrams, 25ct Evenweave Fabric, #24 Needle, and sufficient threads and embellishments to complete the design.
The Stem Stitch is a basic embroidery stitch, which has been used for centuries throughout the world. It is used mainly for stems of flowers or outlining since it produces a nice solid line. The stitch begins on the left and is worked to the right. Working successful Stem Stitches depends on making sure your stitches are all the same length and your thread is always to the right of or below the needle. Thea has used the stem stitch in her Heirloom Anniversary Sampler.
Design area: 39h x 40w (3.3” x 3.3”)
Cut fabric: 25ct Lugana 6" X 6"
Do you want to stitch Thea's Sampler Designs but find you need some extra help with the intermediate free form embroidery techniques with silk ribbon? We recommend Level 2 of Beyond Cross Stitch Series of kits! Each kit in includes a lovely Free Form Embroidery Stitch mixed with Cross stitch. We use Silk Ribbon to teach you these stitches because Thea also occasionally uses Silk Ribbon in her designs! Stitch them in progression, starting with Level 2 #01.
Each project is designed to be quick, easy, inexpensive and fun to stitch!
Clear step-by-step instructions, stitch history and background, and focus on the repetition of the stitch so that the new Specialty Stitch students really learn!
“Beyond Cross Stitch Kits” are each packaged well, with beautifully clear full colour pictures on the cover, in re-useable zip lock bags so you can take them along as “purse-able projects”.
The projects can all easily be made into inexpensive gifts such as Christmas Ornaments, Sachets, Potpourri bags, Quilt Squares, Pincushions, Door Hangers, or Greeting Cards for loved ones, or Framed.
