I love to stitch! I mean I really LOVE to stitch!
I want you all to love to stitch!
I want you to love it because you can do it, and you want to do it, and you are happy to do it, and you can do it well, and it makes you feel good, and you want to do it even more…
because I love it!
/stɪtʃ/ Show Spelled[stich] Show IPA
one complete movement of a threaded needle through a fabric or material such as to leave behind it a single loop or portion of thread, as in sewing, embroidery, or the surgical closing of wounds.
a loop or portion of thread disposed in place by one such movement in sewing: to rip out stitches.
a particular mode of disposing the thread in sewing or the style of work produced by one such method.
Soooooo, would you like to learn? Starting next Sunday I will begin a personal lesson program for you all. The plan is I will post every Sunday with a new stitch or tip or tutorial on stitching and embroidery. We will start right at the beginning – if you already stitch you never know you may pick up something, even just one little thing that is new or different. And if you have never touched a needle and thread we will have you making beautiful stitches in no time. And, if there is a tip you can give me along the way, please do, there is always something more to learn and I by all means don’t profess to know it all..but I am ready to share what I do know.
We will start simple and then progress to some more exciting and challenging embroidery stitches.. I’ll be back later in the week with a supply list for our starter class so please spread the word, put the badge on your blog, on facebook, invite your friends, invite your kids to join in and tell them all we start this Sunday…
hugs for today
Hi Helen, I have been looking all week for good tutorials or lessons. I had just given up when I fell in to an interview with you over at http://www.welovefrenchknots.com now I have spent the last little while finding my way back to the beginning of stitched Sundays. I am so THRILLED! Your explanations and photos are great and best of all, it looks like we have the same exact "tastes" as far as styles, designs & colors go. Thank you so much for taking the time to post all of these. I am going to start from here.
