Using Ideas from Historical Needlework – Guest Blogger: Val Gleeson

August 18, 2022

Level 3 Advanced Studies in Experimental Stitch – Class Name: Bachelor Buttons – Blog 3 in a Series of 8

When I began collecting ideas for the needlework narrative, I envisioned a poster that could be used in a children’s library or bookstore with the subject being Reading is the Pathway to Adventure. However after I started researching needlework from the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, the poster morphed into a small needlework piece using both ideas from the historical needlework and those I developed by creating paper pieces that I moved around until I reached what I was hoping to accomplish.
