Canadian Embroiderers’ Guild, Guelph

November brought an exciting opportunity to visit Canada; my first visit to this spacious country and just in time to see some of the gorgeous Autumn colours too. I had a great time teaching three different groups, all highly motivated and enthusiastic.

The first workshop took its inspiration from traditional needlework techniques, all very familiar and now disappearing.

Diana combined fabric, papers and stitch.

Ruth was using darning and patching ideas.

Here’s a patch in progress

Donna experimented with a ‘vintage’ series of patches.

Alison was working with a collection of old needlework samples reminding her of her childhood days at school.

Ideas from the second workshop will be in the next post.
