Smocking is an easy to learn, yet impressive, traditional English hand sewing technique. It produces an attractive and hardwearing effect suitable for use wherever fabric is gathered. It is fabulous on bags, cushions and garments. It works particularly well on pockets, sleeves and under yolks.
This class is perfect for anyone who enjoys hand sewing.
In this class you will learn to smock with up to 5 different decorative stitches (depending on your speed of stitching) that can be combined in different ways. You will leave the class with a smocking sampler that you can use to remind you of the techniques you have learned.
