Today’s fashion today follows various whims and trends. Embroidery on jeans and jackets is once again popular, so this will be the focus for this stitching class. In this class you will learn various stitches including French knots, feather stitch, straight, running and satin stitch. After practicing the stitches, you will create a design to embroider on your own jeans, jackets or tops. All materials and handouts will be provided.
Sally Kahler has always loved to create. As a child Sally learned to knit and embroider and still enjoys it. As an adult living in Hong Kong, she renewed her love of embroidery when she was among a small group of expats stitchers permitted to take a class at the Silk Institute in Suzhou, China. In recent years she has taught embroidery skills to members of the Triangle Weavers Guild in Chapel Hill.
Sally is also an accomplished weaver, weaving on an 8-harness loom. She is best known for her handwoven scarves with hand-painted warps that create painterly patterns.
Sally grew up in Dushore and, when she is not in Chapel Hill NC, spends her summers in LaPorte, PA.
