A sonata is a piece, usually in several movements, expressed in needlework by Sonata.

Teaching objectives:

  • Explore analogous color schemes
  • Stitch with several different textures of cotton, metallic, and rayon threads
  • Examine the structure of “twisty” stitches so the stitcher can move through the project with ease and confidence

Analogous color schemes, colors next to each other on the color wheel, provide inspiration for the colors in Sonata. Texture is carried throughout by use of different stitches and threads, resulting in a delightful needlework project.

Stitchers may choose from a Cool color scheme of blue, green, purple and turquoise on Antique Blue canvas, a Warm palette of red, orange, yellow or magenta on Victorian Red canvas, or a Neutral color way of beiges with olive accents on Eggshell canvas.
