Framing Up for Embroidery - Online Class
Wednesday 25th August 2021
2pm to 4pm (British Time)
Join me (online) to learn how to properly assemble a slate frame ready for embroidery. The same principle also applies to a roller frame, if you prefer to use one (the tension achieved is not quite as good, but they are widely available and still very useful frames).
In this one-off two hour session I will go through the process with you, from cutting and squaring the fabric, all the way to fully tightening the frame. It is very likely it will take you more than 2 hours to complete the process yourself, so I will make some short videos available after class to refresh your memory.
Booking closes 20th August.
In order to work alongside me you will need a slate frame, however you can still book to watch the class if you haven't got one (yet!) I promise you will learn a lot, and I am always more than happy to answer questions.
There is no kit for this class, but you will need:
Slate frame (or roller frame)
Strong thread (such as Coats Duet)
Large crewel needle or chenille needle
Cotton webbing tape 2-3 inches wide (length to fit both sides of your frame - usually a metre is enough)
Parcel string (the traditional cotton type, not plastic)
A very large chenille needle, bodkin or 'bracing' needle, large enough to thread parcel string into
