Students can continue with their sample book or stitch a collage of New Zealand flora and fauna. The sample book is a good start for any new embroiderer and allows each student to try out different embroidery styles and stitches. Each sample created is then stitched into a book.
Students who are ready to move on can then stitch a collage picture which is made up of 6 different embroideries and patched together to form a picture or small quilt. Students will be encouraged to design a square of their own and to personalise their collage. The embroidery patches are New Zealand themed flora and fauna.
