Linen on Linen, in Shades of Blue
Date: Sunday, Aug 12 - Friday, Aug 17, 2018
Subject: Spinning, Dyeing, Needlework & Thread Art
Instructor: Cassie Dickson
Share:

The Deerfield Society of Blue and White Needlework (1896-1926) revived patterns and embroidery stitches of the 18th-19th centuries and created original designs of blue stitches on linen. In hands-on fashion, experience the flax to linen process using 18th-century tools, learn about growing and retting flax, and dye linen thread with indigo. We'll use prepared linen embroidery thread to reproduce Deerfield patterns on linen towels as we delve into the history. Basic spinning skills and comfort operating a wheel are recommended.
