September 2011 Jane Smith Traditional Japanese Embroidery

 Jane is a teacher of Japanese Embroidery having studied and passed the necessary tests with the Japanese “ Grand Master” and his family in America. Her illustrated talk covered the history, techniques, tools and threads required to create the typical Japanese embroidery. She showed some of her work and explained how the delicate and beautiful stitches were worked. This was a very interesting and informative talk and created a great deal of interest amongst the members.
