It is time to think about the next Children's Class in 2019! OMG.
Having recovered from that little shock I set out on an internet search starting with "Free Hand Embroidery Patterns." This RSI injury is really limiting what I am able to do so I thought I would start with something easy. First one I opened was at Craftsy and I did find about 12 free patterns of interest, which I found surprising.
But I have to tell you about the one from Raouken.
A simple little pattern with 37 Pages of instructions for an embroidery that finished measures 12 x 13 cm.!!! Talk about detailed. Every single stitch is explained. I then started following the trail to the Facebook page. Not only embroidery, which is amazing, but knitting as well. This for a doll's skirt.
There is just so much out there on the web that it has got me thinking. This RSI injury could last some time and really restrict my ability to stitch. I am thinking about structuring this years classes around introducing kids to some of the things that are out there on the net re embroidery, starting with what ever free design we decide on first. The web is such a huge resource that an introduction to how to use it to help you develop embroidery skills could be helpful I think.
