HAND EMBROIDERY EMBELLISHMENT
Join the Prints Charming girls, Kirsten and Kath and thread a needle and start stitching! We love embroidery and the way it adds so much colour and texture to fabric, it is the most creative way to paint with thread. Choose a hand printed panel and learn or re visit embroidery stitches that we love and use over and over. Don’t follow a pattern, be inspired to use a variety of stitches and threads to create your own piece. Learn the stitches and you’ll never look at fabric the same way again!
