Converting a Photograph to Needlework

Jean will assist interested stitchers in selecting their favorite picture to embroider and provide a transfer so stitching can begin at our January meeting.

Bring as many photographs as you like, Jean will assist with photo editing and digitizing. Landscape photos are often used, but photos of a flower, building, favorite object, animal or person may also be considered. Ultimately it will go onto fabric or canvas using transfer paper. The maximum size for the final work is 8" x 10" because of limiting paper size. Please make photo choices by November 11th so Jean can provide you with a transfer at the December meeting.

In January, we will work on stitching your photograph. Students provide fabric and threads. The cost of two transfers is $8. They can be of the same photograph or different as one is intended as practice.
