Crazy Quilting was popular during the Victorian era. Crazy quilts were made from all sorts of fabrics into unrestrained designs, incorporating memorabilia. The class will spend two weeks discovering various embroidery stitches to be used while completing a personal Crazy Quilt square. Each student will complete their own square with embroidery stitches, lace, beads, and other personal memorabilia.
Blackwork is a needlework technique that was popular during the Tudor era. Repetitive geometric patterns are used to create the design. The class will spend the final two weeks working on a blackwork sampler.
