Beginners will wrap and mark a simple division ball and do 3-4 basic stitch patterns such as Kiku Herringbone, Spindle, Star and Triwing using pearl cotton and metallic threads. Experienced students will turn a simple division ball into a complex 8-division, then stitch a Kiku sampler using Herringbone, Ribbed, Reverse and Descending Kikus, and finish with Triwings. Expect to finish 1 – 4 balls during class, depending on your level.
