Class Fee: $35 (Includes patterns)
Class Description: “French Boutis” is a classic style of embroidery practiced in southern France since the 17th century. This amazing technique features a stuffing technique using 100% cotton 4-ply worsted weight yarn. This is NOT Trapunto, which is an Italian-based technique using batting or fiber fill. Boutis creates much more delicate, intricate designs with heirloom quality results. I’ve created two small designs for beginners. Join me on a brand new embroidery adventure! Pre-requisite: Basic embroidery skills.
