What IS Chicken Scratch?

* Skill level: Beginner
* Class length: 3 hours
* Class available as Live or Virtual

Chicken scratch is a type of counted cross stitch popular in the the 1930’s to 1950’s, and primarily stitched on gingham fabrics (and now on large dotted fabrics). It is characterized by 3 main types of hand embroidery stitched: running stitch, cross stitch, and a double cross stitch. These stitches are used to decorate different items such as pillows, place mats, cushions, aprons, and even clothing. Michele will present a short power point presentation of  chicken scratch projects for inspiration! Since this is a technique class, students will learn to stitch the basic stitches to create the hearts as shown. * All students will need to purchase a kit for this class.
