Incognito – Goldwork has been taken to the next level with this contemporary design. Incognito demonstrate how you can mix traditional techniques with contemporary embroidery to create a delight in texture and colour.
This design is created using goldwork and beading by needle specially created for Stitch magazine. Alternatively, you could use tambour beading but all the instructions are made using a needle and thread for the beading.
This kit is aimed at someone who has knowledge of embroidery but would like to improve their skills to get to the next level.
I have been inspired by Venetian masks and I wanted to recreate the magic with this new design Incognito combining my two favourite techniques Goldwork and Beading. I wanted this mask to be classy but sparkly and combining a wide range of materials from beads, gold and silver purl and Swarovski crystals.
Detailed instructions can be found in each kit and will show you how to work through the design step by step. Also included are hints and tips for the technique but we welcome your additional questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
