    Join us for this online ZOOM class with the fabulous Carolyn Bloom!

    We are mesmerised with Carolyn's incredible stitching on knitted items. If you're craving a unique way to add visual interest to your knitting - this class will have you looking at straight stocking stitch with a new found appreciation!

    Come learn how to turn both the right side and wrong side of your work into a canvas for embroidery.

    Over the course of the class, we will talk about anchor stitches, grids, motifs and more. You'll be delighted to discover that this technique can be applied to right and wrong sides of the same fabric for a gorgeous, reversible piece!

    Students will work the technique on both sides of a swatch during the class as a starting point to be able to incorporate this style of embroidery into other projects in the future.

    In addition, we will talk about the design process and how to approach incorporating "stitching on stitches" into your work. Before you know it, you'll be craving the meditative qualities of stockinette, confident in your ability to turn it in to a unique masterpiece after the knitting is complete.

    Carolyn Bloom {briefly}

    I’m a self-proclaimed aficionado of yarn. I love its endless possibilities, the stories it tells, the connections it enables and the creativity it inspires. Through this medium, I have become a knitter, crocheter, designer and a photographer. And a reluctant web developer.
