Embroidered Lettering Class Project

Here is the completed embroidered lettering class project. I enhanced the print on the fabric and mounted the piece on an oval card with a beaded edging to join the backing fabric.

Lettering on Fabic Workshop

You must read Susan Elliott's report on the workshop sponsored by our local Embroidery Guild chapter on embroidered lettering. Not only was the workshop great, but Susan is a master at description and at photography. I thought I could surface embroidery well, but I learned I could do better. Here is a picture of the workshop project, partly done, compared to the name tag I made a few years ago. I love the improvement resulting from using teacher Canby Robertson's technique. I know I will be using it more in the future.
