Those of you who’ve been following me on FB and Instagram for a while know that apart from creating embroidery kits (and of course posters, notebooks, stamps and all that good stuff), I also teach embroidery workshops.
Two weeks ago, I taught an advanced embroidery workshop at the home of one of my past students. It’s always fun to get together with others who are passionate about this art. I asked each participant to being a work in progress; knowing the ladies in question beforehand,
I knew we’d have a whole rainbow of styles. We were so caught up in our work, I didn’t even have time to get my camera out. Lucky for me, the lovely Keren took care of that.
There’s something really warm and comforting in holding a workshop at someone’s home
Our host Anya’s house is a hive of inspiration. She is an incredibly talented stitcher and knitter. We were all drooling over this adorable elephant, and she promised a knitting workshop soon.
Before learning new, advanced stitches, we stamped our fabrics. The idea was to practice new techniques and get a touch of the stamping fever while we’re at it. Some of our crafty ladies were so smitten with the stamped fabric, they decided to keep it and practice on a different piece (that’s what you get for dealing with talented perfectionists!).
Don’t let the cakes and vegies fool you, we were hard at work
Thank you, Anya, for a great morning.
So what are your embroidery get-togethers like?
