Mountmellick Honeysuckle and Dogrose Doily

Tutor Yvette Stanton

November 17 - 18 2017
Place Guild House, 565 Canning Highway, Alfred Cove
Time 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Mountmellick embroidery is a style of floral whitework embroidery from Ireland. It uses white thread on white fabric and a range of knotted and padded stitches to create rich and sumptuous embroidery. The knitted fringe is a traditional edging.

We will be creating a doily with a pretty design featuring honeysuckle and dogrose. All stitches will be taught in class, and a demonstration of the traditional knitted fringe will be given. This class is suitable even for people who have never tried embroidery before – all skill levels are welcome!  The embroidery stitches will be learned and the doily embroidery started in class. Knitting will be done in your own time following the class.
