It may be a tad early to put up your Christmas tree but it’s definitely not to early to embroider your own using a technique called Huck Embroidery or Swedish Weaving. This technique uses a specific fabric simply known as Huck cloth or Huckaback which have similar qualities of Aida fabric used primarily for Cross stitch work. It is a wonderful fabric for beginners as the weave creates a squared pattern for easy embroidering with.
The technique includes weaving the thread through the fabric rather than stitching all the way through in such a way to finish with a unique style, perfect for anyone worrying about looking messy on the back.
This style of embroidery is thought to originate from the 1600s with it’s height of popularity during the 1930s-40s. It is a style which is coming back into fashion again with large scale projects than before
As part of the class, festive refreshments will be available throughout and perhaps some festive music to get into the mood.
In this class you will learn…
- How to start Huck embroidery
- How to weave into the fabric without going through to the back
- How to create Christmas trees using your own colours
