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 5 different embroideries and patched together to form a picture, wall hanging 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. Students are also able to work on their own projects or ideas.
