I was so excited when I saw that an Embroidery Exhibition was being held locally. All digitizers need to go out and be inspired and get ideas. This was a wonderful opportunity to view some vestments, burses and veils some of which dated back to the early 1900’s. Although there were samples of machine embroidery it was the hand embroidery which captured my attention!
Beautifully worked by hand these remarkable embroideries featured gold work and some were embellished with stones and pearls.
Many of the embroideries had intricate blending of colours:
Overall this embroidery was my favorite. I definitely came away inspired and challenged. I hope you enjoyed seeing a little part of this wonderful exhibition.
Happy embroidering from Hazel
