Bargello gets its name from a thirteenth century civic building in Florence, Italy. Within its walls are antique chairs beautifully upholstered in a “flame stitch” fabric which is still a mainstay of bargello embroidery. Originally done on needlepoint canvas, Linda has modernized it to be worked on Aida cloth. Bargello consists of a variety of upright flat stitches based on mathematical patterns to create an unlimited number of patterns. You will have the opportunity to learn twelve different patterns that you can translate into pillow covers, eye glass cases, belts, purses, or whatever suits your fancy!
