International Day of Felt

The Swedish Embroiderers' Guild in Stockholm had a meeting yesterday to celebrate The International Day of Felt. I'm sure you have all heard about FeltUnited and The International Day of Felt.
Yesterday we showed needlefelting by hand and with an embellisher. 27 ladies turned up and did a great job!

























We were also able to show a collection of traditional swedish embroideries. They were made in the 18th and 19th century. The cusions covers are made in wool. Thank you HV for opening your collection for us!






I was busy teaching people how to work with the embellisher all day. So much fun! At the end of the afternoon I managed to make a few stitches on a piece of wool. When I took the workshop for Sara last week she showed us how to make faces. This is a little brooch I made.

Jag skriver till Gunnel och Ewa-Christine på svenska med hjälp av en översättare. Jag säger det en rolig dag det ser ut som du hade och jag verkligen älskar broschen med ansiktet som du sytt. Underbar

Välgångsönskningar, Carolyn
