World Embroidery Day is a THING! YES YES YES. It is officially on the 30th of July and I would LOVE to stitch with you.
The Swedish Embroidery Guild designated July 30th as World Embroidery Day. This year is the 5th anniversary and we can continue to keep the momentum growing by spreading the word and celebrating the craft we love. If you click here you will be able to read the manifesto. I could read it a hundred times. It amplifies every reason why I do what I do. I know it will resonate with you too.
AND ... it just so happens that this is the first Dandelyne™ workshop organised by me. YAY! I thought ... "What better day to have my very first workshop." It is most certainly a day to celebrate. LET’S DO THIS!
So ... the 30th of July is next weekend. Are you free? Come on down to Eltham town and stitch with me, in a beautiful space in the grounds of Monsalvat. Montsalvat is Australia’s oldest artists’ community, set amid unique grounds and buildings, a place where art is made, taught, exhibited, performed and celebrated. You can read more about Monsalvat here, and grab the address for our workshop.
If this is your first time here you may be thinking ..." Who is this woman?" ... "What is this business all about?" and ... "What are these unique mini embroidery hoops she hinted about at the bottom of her flyer. Well, you can find out all about me here, you can see how much I LOVE embroidery here and you can check out the WHOLE mini embroidery hoop family here.
Now ... all about our special day together. I will have all of the supplies ready for you to stitch your very own embroidery sampler, like the one you see in the photo above. I want to share all of my embroidery tips and tricks, teach you 7 of the most used embroidery stitches, make mini embroidery tassles, laugh, munch on some yummy macaroons and simply enjoy an afternoon stitching with you all.
