Students will need to provide their own clothing items to embroider on.
Choose an item that does not have a lot of stretch. If the fabric has a lot of stretch, then it becomes harder to stitch, and the embroidery might pucker once the hoop is removed.
Pick an item with an area larger than the 6" embroidery hoop. Stitching on an area like pant legs is more challenging than a larger surface area, like a bottom-up shirt. Other great examples are canvas tote bags, denim jackets, or a linen dress shirt.
Jennifer will teach everything you'll need to know in class. If you want to become familiar with the techniques before hand, you can watch the Back Stitch, Long & Short Stitch and Satin Stitch videos on her IGTV. Go to @threadhoney and view the videos under the "Stitch Sampler" Series.
