Portugeuse Whitework Decoration Class at Nancys Stitch Studio
PORTUGEUSE WHITEWORK DECORATION CLASS

The Portuguese Whitework: Bullion Embroidery from Guimarães book by Yvette Stanton was Barbara’s starting point for this exquisite decoration. This type of Guimarães embroidery is a combination of drawn thread embroidery and surface embroidery. Much of the embroidery is bullion knots; if you’re not a fan of the bullion knot, don’t be intimidated! Really, they just take practice once you have the right technique. These small decorations are very achievable.
A copy of the book is included in the class price.

SAN BLAS APPLIQUE Class at Nancys
SAN BLAS APPLIQUE CLASS

The San Blas islands near Panama are home to a traditional technique called Mola, panels of which were incorporated into their clothing. Molas are handmade using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers (usually two to seven) of different-coloured cloth (usually cotton) are sewn together; the design is then formed by cutting away parts of each layer. The edges of the layers are then turned under and sewn down.
In this class you will start with your initials, or other meaningful letters to create a uniquely personal panel.
There will be homework between the classes.
