Learn to Embroider - Schwalm Whitework Cushion-Waitlist available
'Mein Liebling' by Julie Clemett
This design is a new Schwalm embroidery release from Julie and translates to 'My Darling'. Schwalm Embroidery combines drawn thread work, pulled thread work, and whitework and is generally bold, folk motifs – tulips, hearts, flowers & birds. Mein Liebling includes tulips, hearts and flowers.
For this design you will be stitching a neutral pallet of Coton a Broder Ecru threads on 35ct Flax Linen- not as shown in the photos. Please be in touch if this is not suitable as there are leadtimes for threads and Linens. The choice of lining and backing fabric will be yours once you complete the front and is not included in this workshop.
The workshop will teach you all the stitches required and is held over two Saturdays which will allow you time to master the stitches being taught between workshops. As described below there is homework between workshops

Homework: complete the Coral Stitch and Chain Stitch around cut thread areas, and cut threads prior to 2nd workshop
