This week I find myself back in the world of needlebooks.
Next month, I will be teaching the Harikuyo Needlebook to my local Embroiderers' Guild so I am gathering supplies for those kits. I'm also playing with alternate colorways using traditional Japanese fabrics...
Additionally, I'm designing a few romantic versions of the needlebook using silks, flowers and more feminine colors.
Since I'll be knee-deep in needlebooks next month, I'm also considering teaching a Fall version of the Harikuyo Needlebook course that I offered last February. You can check out all the great books made from that course in the Harikuyo needlebook Flickr group here.
I have a running list of interested folks so if you emailed me your interest, you should be hearing from me in the next few weeks about possible start dates. I'm thinking the end of October or beginning of November as a class start date.
If you have any questions or are interested in getting on that list, please email me. I'm planning to offer a number of limited edition kits in addition to the standard one that we used last time.
You can read more about the class here.
That's it for now. See you next time!
