Kit cost: $20.00 (payable to tutor)

Member: $45.00

Inspired by a 17th Century German sampler this petite pincushion is the perfect size project to introduce you to the Blackwork basics of double running stitch and running back stitch. There is also an opportunity to personalise some of the border design to make it your own. As a counted embroidery technique we will be using even weave fabric and black stranded cotton for the stitching. We will learn about stitch journeys and work with repeated motifs. To complete the pincushion we will make a fine twisted cord and mini-tassels and take our time to hand sew the piped seams.
