This class covers all the main wires and threads and other materials used in Goldwork – stitches used through the ages, how to care for your threads and wires, and what equipment you need. Students will enjoy using a selection of stitches and special effects and learn which stitches are appropriate for a selection of shapes and designs. Sarah stocks over 500 threads and wires and her knowledge of these is an absolute gift to the embroiderer.
