Geometric needle run embroidery on net. Make a scarf or runner.

This class will explore the geometric needle run, counted thread tradition that was widely worked in Colonial Australia when materials were scarce, but mosquito netting was readily available. Women sought to decorate their homes using the meagre supplies available.

Patterns are mostly running stitch, over/under each bar of the net or sometimes both bars either side of a single hole of the net. We will follow patterns by counting the bars or meshes. 

This technique is simple and relaxing and will be a favourite!  I will provide the net, patterns and notes at a cost of $30 per student.

Skill level: All levels

Kit: $30
