Sussex landscapes in machine embroidery

Stitched by Margaret Borbone

I’ve received some lovely photos from the workshop in June with Julia Brown, on Sussex landscapes in machine embroidery (thanks to Margaret for the photos). I’ve seen some wonderful creations from this day, and everyone seems to have really enjoyed it. Julia showed people how to colour the fabric ready for stitching, and while that dried she demonstrated some useful tips on machine embroidery. Julia gave everyone a pre-prepared canvas to practice stitching on while their canvas dried, and while they learned the techniques. The bigger painted canvas was taken away to complete at home. The two shown here are by Margaret, and there are also some photos of the workshop in progress. You can see the concentration!
