There will be some preparation work needed prior to the workshops The sampler uses many unique stitches no longer used but common in the Tudor and Stuart period (like Elizabethan net stitch, rice stitch, tent stitch, Montenegrin stitch 2 versions), Italian cross, long arm cross, upright diamond stitch and the list goes on. Threads used are stranded silk, gilt silk twist and metal threads. While this is counted work embroidery there are also stitches familiar to those who have worked on Elizabethan surface embroidery, detached buttonhole, satin stitch, twisted chain stitch and plaited braid stitch, spiderwebs.
