Do you like Redwork?

Did you know that Redwork Embroidery has quite a history? Rissa Peace Root has a very well written article: A Redwork Embroidery Primer where she explains the history and evolution of Redwork and provides some great links too. 

Combining stitchery into quilts is quite a trend with quilters both traditional and modern. Learning the basic stitches and techniques will help you create your very own unique quilts.  

The images below are from the Redwork Winter Twitterings Block of the Month Program we had at the store. The program was so popular we had to run it twice! 




Here's another example of what you can do with Stitchery. 


Judy will be teaching a class this Monday, November 12th between 1:00pm and 3:00pm.
