Special Projects: Master Embroidery Academy

HEG Master Embroidery Academy
 

The Hinsdale Embroiderers’ Guild presented the opportunity for a major  embroidery stitching project in September 2023. Thirty eight members of the guild signed up for this year-long embroidery project. 

Anne Zick led the stitching sessions based on 13 pamphlets of many different stitches from Piecemakers Country Store in Mesa, CA (https://piecemakers.com) plus more variations that she added.

The women gained confidence in using different threads and combining stitches which can be used in other types of needlework.  

The final session resulted in a personal stitch book, but some members selected to make a pillow, cross stitch piece or quilt instead.  At the final show and tell, participating stitchers received a Master Embroidery Diploma.
