Did you know that most geometric smocking designs are made up of just four basic stitches, configured in different ways? The age-old technique of hand-stitching on pleated fabric is appreciated by all, and can be used in so many ways! Smocking is found not only on vintage garments, but is showing up all over today’s trendy baby and home décor treasures, too. Join Kathy as you learn the basic stitches: Outline or Stem, Cable, Baby Waves and Multi-Step Waves. You’ll learn how to start each row of stitching, change colors and tie-off. Start with pleated fabric, floss, needles and an illustrated handout, and leave class confident in your smock-ability. Note: In Nashville this class will be taught by Trisha Smith.
