Smyrna stitch, Hungarian stitch, Bargello, star stitch, Rhodes stitch, eyelet stitch... you will learn all these stitches in the initiation class run by Catherine Rouchié in our Sajou Paris store.
This technique is an amusing and varied alternative to cross stitch, mixing threads and colours to add depth and texture almost endlessly.
Easy to do with all the different threads available in our store, Retors du Nord, Laine Saint-Pierre, Tonkin, Caudry and metallized.
As a textile designer and author of embroidery books, Catherine Rouchié is dedicated to taking a fresh look at embroidery stitches and transmitting her knowledge.
