Our New Group Course…..

gcc dresden gardengcc dresden garden closeDresden Garden introduces the student to the technique of Dresden Lace, a combination of pulled thread stitches, where fabric threads are distorted to form holes. Flat stitches, reverse herringbone, shadow work, and padded satin stitches will be covered. The difference between pulled thread and Dresden Lace is the fabric on which it is worked. Pulled thread can be worked on any count fabric; however, Dresden is worked on a fine handkerchief linen type fabric. Dresden is always worked with combination stitches, flat stitches and pulled thread stitches with a background of the four-sided stitch. This project can be framed, placed on a box top, used as a ring bearer’s pillow or for a guest towel border, to name a few.
