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."

Back to Basics Level 2

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."

Tony states: "Back to Basics, Level 2 is the second in a series of classes Back to Basics The Right Way, the object of which is to explore all the aspects of good canvas embroidery technique in a sequential order to strengthen stitching technique. This class picks up where Level 1 left off by including more involved straight stitches, diagonal stitches and composite stitches. Learning different types of chain stitches, more plaited stitches, variations on wrapped stitches, traditional and non-traditional Turkey work, variations in pulled work and black work, options for beading, and much more will fill a new reference notebook.

Participation in Back to Basics I is a requirement for participation in this class."
