Back to Basics 1

Tony Minieri


Tony's goal for his Back to Basics classes:  "..a series of classes designed to teach new stitchers good habits or to help seasoned stitchers improve their techniques and stitching quality and to help experienced stitchers remember what they might have forgotten."



As Tony states for Back to Basics 1: "In the first class of the Back to Basics The Right Way series, Tony shows the student the correct way of stitching to improve needlepoint techniques. Included in the session are a discussion of essential tools, easy and proper ways to thread a needle, beginning and ending threads, how to mount the canvas on the stretcher bars (and why to use them), compensation and other techniques. Stitches covered include diagonal stitches, line stitches, crossed stitches, tied stitches, and plaited stitches. Other stitching includes filling patterns, knots, Bokhara couching, canvas appliqué, and traditional canvas appliqué slip."
