Looking Back - C&G Embroidery

I'm still trying to have a good sort out and I came across another folder containing samples from my City and Guilds Embroidery course. Recycle somehow or bin?

One of the first things we had to do was collect white threads in different textures and thicknesses [I've still got some of these threads!] Above is a sampler of Cretan stitch

This one is chain stitch

And this one is straight stitch



The three samples on canvas are Florentine embroidery

Holbein Stitch

Greetings card with hand painted fabric and embroidery

Cutwork

Detached filling stitches
I've also got quilting samples which I'll show some other time.

  1. In the first three and the last sampler the individual designs could be cut and used on something else.
    These samplers are proof of your embroidery skills.
