Embellish It Knits with Myra Wood
Embellishing is a fast and fun way to add a little magic to your finished knit or crochet pieces. Discover how to turn a plain garment or handbag into wearable art. Learn freestyle embroidery stitches, ruffles, duplicate stitching, knitted appliques, and beading techniques to enhance and embellish your work. This creative, hands-on workshop will have you thinking about your knitted wardrobe in a whole new way. Great for quick gifts, too!
