True to its name, A Playground of Stitches is about playing with stitches while using different types of threads such as Perle 8 or 5, stranded cotton, variegated floss and plain ones. With this little project, we will explore some standard stitches, adding a twist to them when you are ready.

Most of all, Playground is a relaxing piece, not too big, and a great way for beginners to practice stitches, playing with them to make flowers and trees. Veronique will even help you enjoy the often-dreaded thread-painting technique.

As we stitch, Veronique will talk about colors and look at trouble-shooting.
