Sweet flowers and fresh, green leafy vines stitched on creamy ivory linen combine in this delightful needlebook. The design for our needlebook comes from the Trevelyon Miscellany of 1608, a book that’s over 400 years old, compiled at the end of the Renaissance. Together we will embroider this design using satin stitch, stem stitch, long and short shading, leaf stitch and trellis work.

The finished design size is 4” x 4.5“

The kit contains beautiful linen twill with printed design, 7 full skeins of cotton floss, needles, a full color instruction booklet, lining fabric for the needle book, felt for the pages, and an individualized project bag.

The students will need to provide a basic stitching kit, magnification and lighting, an 8” hoop with a lap stand, roller frame or slate frame and stand.

Participation is limited to 20.

The affordable class fee for this workshop is made possible through grant support. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from Lake Region Arts Council, thanks to a Minnesota State Legislative appropriation; The Arts Partnership with the Cities of Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo; the Fargo-Moorhead Area Foundation, and the Alex Stern Family Foundation.
