Borders and Edgings


Borders and Edgings


Learn several stitches to create borders and edgings on your textiles in this two-part online workshop. Participants will look at a few embroideries from Sarah Pedlow’s personal collection for inspiration and then dive into this skills-based class.

Part 1: Blanket/Buttonhole stitch and variations, Palestrina Stitch, Beginning Needle Lace used in Hungarian Transylvanian traditions, and a simple fringe.

Part 2: You will learn beginning drawn thread work techniques to make borders used in whitework and colorful embroideries from different traditions.

No previous experience is necessary.
