4-way Bargello class

Filed under: 4-way Bargello class at Rittenhouse Needlepoint

Taking a class in 1&1/2 hours isn’t a lot of time especially when it’s a 4-way bargello.  But, Stephen at Rittenhouse Needlepoint made it work by designing a small enough piece to demonstrate the essentials. We had a variety of colors to select from – already bundled.  The base row took the longest to stitch (& unstitch) requiring concentration.  Turning the corner proves to be the next trickiest area.  After a full day of work, I was very pleased with the instructions, materials, classmates, refreshments, & to get this much done during class:

After an evening of stitching, I still haven’t violated the miter!!

You are lucky to have Rittenhouse as your shop! I wish I did….

Poor Jane, stuck 67 miles one way from the closest needlepoint emporium here in Chilly Hollow

I am lucky – I also have Fireside Stitchery in Frazer, PA – a little farther out for me (45 min drive) but a wonderful store as well.

Hi Melita,

Enjoyed seeing the start of your Bargello project, especially since I enjoy working with different Florentine designs. I just don’t want to admit how long I’ve been using Florentine stitches. 🙂
