Description
Learn about the development and history of embroidery, early period embroidery motifs, and the techniques necessary to recreate them. We’ll discuss several historical examples; fabrics, embroidery threads, and dyes commonly used in different regions; and how to work with period materials or approximate them where the original sources are unavailable. We’ll also discuss transferring designs to a garment, appliqueing separate embroidered pieces to garments, troubleshooting, and making beautiful embroidered garments that will hold up to camping, laundering, and fighting. The fee covers the cost of the packet. I also make the packet available online for free.
