Requirements for counted stitch project
- What are the requirements for counted thread cross stitch and
blackwork projects for the apprenticeship program. Is aidia cloth
allowed for cross stitch? Any particular size? Is linen required
for blackwork? What should the stitching convey about my familiarity
with the style. What subject matter should be expressed it the
piece? Does the blackwork require the use of silk thread, or is DMC
allowed? What about the cross stitch thread? Should I research the
period fill designs for blackwork, or will any fill designs be
allowed? Is the Holbien stitch required for blackwork, or can I
stitch without it? Define "no long skips"? How long is "long".
Would a skip of thread of less that 1 inch or 1/2 inch be allowed?
Thank you fro humoring me!
