The second three hours were spent making samples of various hand-stitches. You can tell from the below pictures that I still need some work in some areas. All in all, I had a great time and met a really nice woman named Shelley. (Hi Shelley!)
First we learned how to use a fell stitch to attach lace to silk. (You can click on any picture to make it bigger.)
Here is a close-up were I added some beads. Not much of a bead person myself, or lace for that matter.
We learned how to cover a snap and a nice way to sew it on. I need practice.
This one was easy.
Need more practice.
We also did a faggoting stitch which I forgot to take a picture of. Pretty cool.
