Have you ever gazed in awe at the exquisite mittens displayed in museum galleries – those marvels crafted from the ancient technique of nålbinding, adorned with delicate embroidery? Journey back to the Viking Era or earlier Iron Age, and learn the same techniques those before us have used in decorating and embroidering their socks, mittens, and other nålbinding garments.

In this class we will be adding embroidery to your mittens. We will learn to add a little structure to the fabric of our nålbinding mitten, plan a design to embroider either using a pattern that is in your kit or making your own pattern, and learning embroidery stitches and techniques to make a mitten that has some beautiful embellishments. We will have an opportunity in our first session to view some of the embroidered mittens in the Vesterheim collection for inspiration.

No embroidery experience needed.
