Quick Challenge Project LEARN... RHODES BUTTERFLY STITCH Faby’s masterclass Discover new techniques every month with our resident stitching expert, Faby Reilly his series has been designed especially for those of you who are keen to learn new stitches and treat yourself to a fun monthly challenge. The designs will cover a variety of styles and themes each issue and every pattern is small enough that it can be stitched over a weekend or in between larger projects, as well as finished in a manner of your choice, exercising your creativity! Although they may look intricate, my patterns are simple to follow, and I’ll give you clear step-bystep tutorials for any special stitches. I do recommend practising the new stitches on a piece of scrap fabric before you start your main design. I hope you enjoy learning these new techniques! T TOP TIP Running stitch is worked by passing the needle in and out of the fabric in a forward movement at regular distances Faby Reilly has been a cross stitch designer for over ten years.
