This class was designed for students who want a challenge. We will stitch an original miniature nightcap that hides a needlework etui. The nightcap is stitched in detached buttonhole in Gilt Sylke Twist threads and trellis stitches in silk. The leaves are stitched in detached buttonhole using both twisted threads and threads we will twist ourselves using two colors of flat silk. This technique was commonly used on pieces of this type to make graduated color changes. During class we will look at many photos of nightcaps and techniques close-up.
