Mostly Crescents focuses on a single type of stitch, crescents. This is a “string-art” type of stitch, and there are certain principles that apply to stitching all crescents. This class offers a thorough understanding of the structure of these stitches, so you can stitch quickly and more confidently when you encounter them in other projects.
We’ll explore several different sizes and shapes of crescents: nautilus crescents, crescents with a tail, layered crescents, teardrop crescents, infinity crescents, fleur de lis crescents, and other shapes. The project is accented with additional stitches like waffle stitches and fans.
Mostly Crescents is offered in four color ways: Bold (orange/purple/turquoise on Aquamarina canvas), Grayscale (grays with red accents on pewter canvas), Monochromatic (beiges to browns on eggshell canvas) or Pastel (blue/pink/lavender/yellow on antique blue canvas). The kit contains DMC flosses, DMC #8 pearl cottons, DMC Satin Floss, and Kreinik #8 Braids. The canvas will have taped edges. Mostly Crescents is a companion piece to Mostly Amadeus (offered previously) and Fandango (registering now with SNS). Other companion pieces will be offered next year.
The instruction book is thorough, over 100 pages, and the class is augmented with 13 stitch video demonstrations that students will be able to review as needed. In addition, weekly Zoom sessions will provide “face-to-face” instruction with Debbie; at least one Zoom session per week will be recorded for participants unable to join the “live” sessions.
