Purring in Class is Allowed

May 6, 2017

In April the level 2 Group (Lisianthus) met for Studies in Design and Hand Stitch  for 5 days. This was the 4th of 5 sessions for 8 students.   Each session sees the introduction of new ways to design and use hand stitches in a contemporary way.  The group is finishing up samples from past sessions when they learned about Kantha stitches, designing and stitching on printed fabric and preparing to make a small handmade bead book. There is almost an audible purring noise while this group is stitching. For those of you who have worked creatively with your hands, you will understand how the body becomes calm, blood pressure drops and other wonderful things occur with the creative process.  Although, I wasn’t able to photograph all of the student’s work, I have included a few photos for you to see what they are doing. Thank you group – for photos of your colorful stitches.  Your enjoyment of stitch makes both Penny and I smile a lot.

    It is always amazing to see the exciting work of each talented class. And I can almost hear that purring of hand stitching that goes on in a class. Such a wonderful thing to be stitching. This Lisianthus class has done some beautiful work!
