Surface Stitch

Ann's sample

 At the end of last month we had an interesting workshop with Ann Holden. Who could have thought you could achieve so many different effects using just one stitch! Ann brought along lots of samples for us to see and then proceeded to show different variations of simple stitches. Her clear instructions meant that everyone went away with various samples. She also showed us how to make a fabric concertina book to put our samples in. A most enjoyable workshop.
