I've been meaning to post about this for a while. I spent a lovely day last month at the Halifax branch of the Embroiderers' Guild, running my Mapping Marks for Stitch workshop. I always begin this workshop with some drawing, and often get responses of "I can't draw", " I don't enjoy drawing". It seems that many of us are scared at the prospect of beginning to draw, but I have some fun techniques to get people started, and have to say that the Halifax Embroiderers' took the challenges on board and created some lovely marks on paper. There were so many to choose from, I could do with a separate blog, but here are just a few of them.
They also get the prize for the best response to a machine embroidery demo with a fabulously long "Oooooooo" (the type usually used for fireworks!!) Thank you for a lovely day ladies.
