My art buddy, Penny, and I are off to the San Francisco Bay area for an exciting 2 day workshop at the Teahouse Studio in Berkeley. We are taking "Layers of lines, Layers of Meaning: Thick Embroidery with Rebecca Ringquist. We are taking some old embroidered fabrics and our sewing machines, a list of fun places to visit, and some cookies for my son Jason who will join us for dinner on Thursday.
Check out Rebecca's cool website for a look at her wonderful stitching.
So while thinking of embroidering I thought I'd post some photos of things "embroidered" from the past.
The top piece is a sampler that I just keep working on...not sure what I will do with it when done...
This piece is from a fiber ATC project that I joined online years ago. Each month we made an ATC and posted for the others to see. I finally got them stitched onto a piece of linen.
I cut off the top a bit in this photo...oops.
These next pieces are samples for a fiber arts class that I wanted to teach for Artfiberfest (but didn't).
I still need to fill in the fabric pages with lots of stitching and illustration.
Just a funny embroidered bird tea party I never really finished...maybe I will now.
A close up of an angel I stitched many years ago. I ended up sewing it to the front of a handbag and sent it in to a magazine...can't remember which one!
Another funny little piece. Just some stitching around and on a piece of bright bird fabric.
Love stitching with these hand dyed felts I found on Etsy...
I use these on fiber jewelry and other pieces of fiber art.
Hope you have a creative and stitchy week full of fiber fun!
Hope to have some workshop photos when I return sometime next week.
