Creative carers: The art of card stitching
April 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
Join Carers Leeds as we explore our creative side once again and enjoy a fun ‘crafternoon’ learning the art of card stitching.
Meet other carers and our creative guide Karen from the comfort of your home as we craft together over the internet via Zoom. To take part you will need access to a computer, smart phone or tablet.
The use of card as a base material for embroidery probably goes back almost as far as the production of card itself. In 1820 sheets of perforated paper became available to needle crafters. This started the Victorian craze for stitching mottos and sayings on card. Designs were typically worked in long parallel stitches to form areas of colour.
In the 1990’s card stitching came to people attention again and has been gaining popularity since then. The image below shows the type of designs you can produce.
Join us at this online session where we will explore the techniques of this craft to make a card for someone special. It is a lot easier than it looks. All materials will be supplied for this session.
