Klosterstich hands on tutorial – part 1 – how to start your Klosterstich embroidery :)

Before we get to the next steps of how to sew a perfect fitting medieval 14th century stocking based on my most recent stocking pattern tutorial, I have the very first part of my Klosterstich hands on tutorial about “how to start Klosterstich embroidery” for you.Racaire - Klosterstich - medieval embroidery

Already some time ago I promised to put together this Klosterstich hands on tutorial as an addition to my Klosterstich technique handout. It is a summery of my experience based on several Klosterstich classes which I hold throughout the last years.

My Klosterstich hands on tutorial is especially dedicated to all to you who are new to this kind of embroidery. And like always, I couldn’t resist to add some extra in-depth information as well as a book recommendation you might find interesting. 🙂

How to start your Klosterstich embroidery

During the last years I was often asked about the best way of how to start this kind of surface filling embroidery. Therefore I decided for this Klosterstich hands on tutorial to first show you a great way how to start and secure your very first thread before we actually start with the Klosterstich embroidery technique.

I think that a good and neat start makes it much easier to continue with your embroidery. It furthermore also keeps the backside of your embroidery nice and clean...

I am sorry, but the following content is restricted to logged in members of my blog.
