Stitching With: Deerfield Embroidery



'Stitching With Liz & Helen' is a collaboration between two Royal School of Needlework tutors, Liz Tapper & Helen Jones (, to bring the art of needlework to Exeter. We aim to provide classes in a range of techniques and for varying skill levels. Please do get in touch if there's a particular course you would like to see listed. Deerfield is an American embroidery technique that has been described as 'Jacobean in shades of blue'.   The palette ranges from white to the darkest blue and images typically are of stylised flowers and birds.   It is worked in linen thread on linen fabric. It is suitable for all skill levels. (Image to follow.) The class kit of £20 is payable on the day, and will include everything you require to complete the project. You will need to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames on the day. Please bring a magnifier and light (if needed). This class will run from 10am-4pm at Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David's Hill, Exeter EX4 3RG.
