Le Jardin Needle book

Le Jardin Needlebook – Digital Download


Beautiful garden flowers stitched in shadow work are the focus of this 3-hour class. Students will learn the basics of working even, smooth shadow stitches while learning Wendy’s fabulous techniques for how to stitch those awkward shapes by geometric association, a technique pioneered by her. Sometimes knowing where to start is more important than knowing how to start, and in this lesson, Wendy leaves no stone unturned where shadow work embroidery is concerned. To add visual interest to the project, golden threads are added to the stems and centers of the flowers. Add a few gold spangles, and voila! This beautiful needle book is worked in Floche on luscious silk dupioni, mounted, and backed with gingham silk taffeta and equipped with a wool needle pad for your most precious needles. This piece is part of the Le Jardin Collection and matches the pincushion, scissors case, and sewing box cover, which may be purchased separately.
