Standing Wool Techniques
Gail Ramirez and Sue Revelle
Class size limit: 16
Students will learn standing wool, coiling, and shirring techniques and use them within a hooked
project. Most of the class will be spent designing the standing wool features and sewing them to
the foundation. Each of these features uses #9-cut wool and highlights the edges of the wool
rather than its flat surface. Items provided: pattern on linen, pins, clips, ‘C’ needle, 3” doll
needle, thread, and beeswax. Participants should bring hook, scissors, hooking frame, cutter
with #9 blade (if they have one), and wool. (Cutters with #9 blades will also be made available
for those who do not have their own.) Wool for the special elements of the project should be
selected based on the colors and textures of the wool’s edge.
