Anna-Marie Winter is a very dear friend of mine and not only a fabulous designer but a patient and giving teacher. Periodically we entice her to teach Cyber Classes at Bedecked and Beadazzled. They are always a great learning experience.
The newest Cyber Class she is offering is Promise.
Here’s how Anna-Marie describes the piece. Delicate bands of Hemstitching separated by narrow inserts of lace and embroidery on an antique camisole was the inspiration for this graceful rolled pillow. Traditional counted thread techniques worked in untraditional fibers form the basis for this cyberclass. Elegant bands of hearts, flowers and open work embroidered in silk and pearls borders a lacy center band of Hardanger and Pattern Darning. Fine silk ribbon, Soie d’Alger, Soie Perlee, pearl braid and seed pearls are used to work the delicate bands of Pulled and Drawn Thread embroidery, Darning patterns and Hemstitching.
This classic white on white design combines a variety of fibers including silk, silk ribbon and metallic threads. Various finishing techniques will also be explored to adapt this design to several styles of pillows or finished as a framed piece.
Class starts June 15th, so if you are interested in joining us please sign up soon.
Hopefully one day soon we will be able to announce that she is teaching in person at the shop. Wouldn’t that be a treat!
