This class will teach the basic stitches of Hungarian Written Embroidery. As the basic chaining stitch is learned and mastered, a beautiful pattern will emerge. Students will stitch a traditional heart or tulip design on a piece of linen that can later be sewn into a small bag, pin cushion, or decorative hanging, or added to a quilt or clothing. Students will also take home materials to create more pieces with accompanying resources on Hungarian embroidery and patterns. Sarah will share her knowledge of the culture and history of Transylvanian textiles and her extensive travel experiences in Hungary and Romania.
