TO SHRED OR TO MEND- ROGUE KNITTING

I read today about an interesting class at a London’s Ray-Stitch haberdashery.
The class is an introduction to embroidery for beginners workshop taught by Celia Pym and I think it would be fascinating to take darning and mending to another level. See her work here:
I find this fascinating and by the way I have brazenly used this image without permission. You can find it on Celia’s website along with her other beautiful work.
