The Embroiderers' Guild HQ holds a vast number of examples of all kinds of work. For the next two months we have, on loan, some of this valuable collection for members to study.
We chose canvas work and Florentine work folios because we felt that they could appeal to both traditional and contemporary stitchers alike. We were not disappointed! The collection includes a diverse range of examples using mainly wool but also modern work which incorporates many types of yarn - almost mixed-media pieces.
Members chose their favourite pieces to photograph or sketch and there were plenty of books on hand to illustrate techniques. As usual there was lots of advice from other members who brought in examples of their own work.
Don't worry if you missed the Folios this month, we're doing it all again in May!
