Get to know Minia, photographer, embroidery specialist, and founder of Studio Variopinto. She talks you through her journey into the world of embroidery, and what led to making it her full-time profession. She also shares her references and goes through what you’ll learn in the course.

Start off by discovering the tools and materials you are going to use. Learn the basic flat embroidery stitches: back stitch, running stitch, fly stitch, weave stitch, and split stitch. Then learn the raised stitches: french knot, picot stitch, and rope stitch.

Explore the ideal type of photos for transferring onto fabric, learn how to use color, and see how to select an attractive color palette. Create a collage of your design and composition idea with Photoshop before starting your final project.

Minia teaches you three techniques to transfer your images: with printable fabric, with gel transfer medium, and fabric transfer paper.

Next, it’s time to start embroidering! Create stitches onto your transferred image with an embroidery hoop. Work in a step by step method, creating each element of your final design.

Finally, Minia teaches you how to make the finishing touches to your composition, leaving it ready to decorate the space you’ve chosen for it. End the course with Minia’s final tips and advice for preserving your embroidered piece.
