A friend of mine called Pian Bates is organizing an International Embroidery Symposium in Sweden next summer. This is what she writes about it on her blog.
There is to be an International Embroidery Symposium in Sweden next summer - beginning of August 2008.
We hope that people from all over the world, interested in embroidery and stitching will join us.
What would be of special interest - traditional or free creative embroidery or both? Any suggestions - teachers, lecturers and subjects etc will be gratefully received. Please let us know as soon as possible.
The place of venue is outside Gävle - north of Stockholm.
We are looking forward to ideas from all of you.
If anyone is interested in participating please send me an e-mail and I'll forward it to Pian. The program should be ready in February and you'll be able to find it at Pians brand new blog Embroidery. If you're interested in teaching please let her know as soon as possible.
