Floral Needle Nanny/Minder No. 3 Petite Project

Monday, January 9, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.
Virtually by Zoom, a link will be sent to members

Needle nannies or minders were created to encourage beginners to try hand embroidery. Simple pinwheels are used to form hollyhocks, french knots for roses and forget-me-nots. Other stitches are in the stitch glossary to encourage you to try something new. DMC threads have been used, but any similar range of threads or hand-dyed threads can be used.

This Petite Project design will introduce you to the delights of creative and three-dimensional embroidery. It is available for members on the EGA website. Once logged-in, it is free to download. Stitchers provide supplies to complete.
