I had the pleasure of teaching a hand stitching workshop yesterday to members of the PM Fiber Arts Guild. The evening before I gave a presentation about the Good Stitch...stitching with intention. The talk focused primarily on my Hand Stitching class with a couple of "healing" cloth stories at the end. I was also so privileged to have a large number of samples from my Hand Stitching and Story Cloth students...so that members of the guild could see the stitching first hand.

I taught a number of basic stitches, emphasizing how they could be manipulated. I wanted students to have a playful approach and to see what these stitches could do! After completing a sampler, students went on to start work on Challenge pieces.

I'm excited to see where these go and hope that students will send photos when they are finished that I can share here.

Thank you students...it was a relaxing, enjoyable day of stitching.
P.S.: Hope you will look past the quality of some of these shots...took many as the light disappeared and a storm blew in. Very exciting with the rain pounding on the skylights!
skylights, storms...stitching together....sounds magical and the results are very interesting. I will enjoy seeing the conclusion to some of these beginnings!ReplyDelete
