I had lunch (and saw this amazing show) with my friend Karuna and her daughter Poppy over the weekend. K gave me a huge stash of her embroidery threads which have inspired me to try all sorts of different stitches. The threads are beautiful hand dyed yarns in jewellery-box colours: rich gold, blues and greens.
The really exciting thing about them is that they're coming with me to The Craft Sessions in Australia at the end of October. I'm teaching a few classes: two of them are free-form embroidery and I will be sharing these beautiful threads, different linens and visual inspiration I've been collecting for this very purpose.
There are few spots available at The Craft Sessions- it will be really quite a special thing. The registrations close on the 10th so you have a couple more days to join in.
