Black Embroidery – Sue Brown
Blackwork embroidery is recognized by its geometric designs that often use repeating floral, star and lattice patterns to fill the inside of a larger shape. While traditional blackwork involves a black thread being stitched onto a white linen or cotton (which may or may not feature accent colors or tones), today the term “blackwork” is more commonly used to describe the technique rather than the use of black thread – so it still uses the delicate, geometric designs, but can be stitched in any color.

Kit fee $10. Bring your needle threader for various sizes of threads and a small pair of embroidery scissors
