Tomorrow and Thursday, I will be attending a workshop sponsored by The St. John's Guild of Embroiderers (I'm a member). It's Contemporary Drawn Thread Forests by Catherine Jordan from the USA. This photo, from her class page, is a sample of the work we will be doing at the workshop. Please visit her site to see the other wonderful things she has made.


I have made similar trees in the past with drawn threads but mine were all in one colour. One such  piece was on exhibit in Chicago a few years ago. I thought I had a photo handy but it's among the thousands of photos that I have not yet tagged. Too many things to be done!!!



  1. Looks like an interesting workshop. Have fun.

  2. These are much smaller than I thought when I first saw the picture. Looks like it will be a wonderful workshop.
