Vanessa shows you how to prepare your fabric and crisply transfer the embroidery design. Plus get tips for how to hoop the fabric before you start stitching.
Learn how to make smooth satin stitches with a backstitch foundation. You'll work all the elements of your hoop with a variety of stitches including the fly stitch, split stitch, lazy daisies and French knots.
