Garment Embellishment:
Hand Embroidery of the American West

Prairie Mountain Folk School - Embroidered Embellishment: Garments of the American West

Join Oregon artist and hand embroiderer Nichole Alvarado as she guides you through five traditional stitches, all of which may be used to embellish a garment you've brought along - no needle and thread experience necessary. Students will learn back, split, satin, and stem stitch as well as French knot. Choose your embellishment from 3 small designs, or create your own. Please bring a non-stretch garment to embroider; cotton, linen, and denim work well. All other materials are included and students will go home with a small embroidery stitch sampler, two needles, and a 4" wooden embroidery hoop, as well as enough embroidery floss to complete your piece at home.
