EMBROIDERY, hand dyed embroidery threads

EMBROIDERY today and what a lovely example it is!  Just love the colours.

I love to see what my customers create using my threads.  One of my fellow Canadians sent this along to me recently.  Judy is a member of the Canadian Embroiderers Guild Guelph and teaches various classes.  This is one of five small projects she will be teaching.  She has used a technique called “overtwist” around the bottom edge which she learned from Alison Cole through her video on Mary Corbet’s website, NeedlenThread.  She has used my silk perle in this project.  I think I just may have to give this technique a go.

So, a little more about the project.  The base is wool and silk fibres that were machine felted to a basic fabric store felt base with an overlay of chiffon.  I’ve used this technique myself with fantastic results.  As I mentioned above, this is one of five small projects that she will be teaching in a six unit class over 12 weeks called “Tradition Meets Modern”.  The course started in September at the Canadian Embroiderers Guild Guelph and is ongoing.

I sure wish I was closer to take this one!  Thanks so much for sharing Judy.
