Stitch a set of accessories for the Elizabeth's Sweet Bag project. We will learn detached silk stitches such as trellis, detached buttonhole, and spiral trellis on 34 ct linen. Use of gold thread to stitch the heavy vine will be taught using a handmade Japanese needle. During class, we will discuss history of Elizabethan gold thread embroidery and sweet bags while stitching. The discussion will be complimented by many pictures and examples to enrich the class. The last half of the class will be dedicated to starting the finishing for the slipper and discussing step-by-step the finishing of all the pieces using pictures of the pieces in process. Pictures of the embroidery and finishing in process will be provided on a CD ROM to the students.
