About the Workshop You will learn to cut and draw the threads of the white linen and to work several of the traditional stitches associated with this type of work, including one that incorporates beads (pictured at the top of the page). You should expect to complete at least 3 different stitches during the workshop, but will be shown more. Full instructions & materials will be provided for you to make your work up into a lavender bag afterwards. The work is completed without using an embroidery hoop.
