  December program: "Schwalm--ing Bee" Whitework Workshop with Diana Snyder

Schwalm--ing BeeOn Saturday, December 13th, please join us for our holiday program which will feature a chance to learn a new whitework technique. German Schwalm embroidery creates a non-traditional design using traditional surface and counted thread techniques. The stitches include chain, satin, coral knot, herringbone, cord, and Persian mesh work. The design may become a pin cushion, a small purse or adorn a name tag. The linen fabric may be either 32 or 36 count in white or natural (tan). Threads are coton a broider in sizes 12, 16, 20 and 25, depending on fabric selection. Thread colors may be white or ecru. See the enlarged image of this design.

This class is being offered to every CRVC member FREE OF CHARGE. The seminar in May was a financial success, thanks to everyone's contributions, so the CRVC Board is passing along some of the proceeds to you. Please join us to learn a form of whitework that is new to most of us.

This program day will also feature an ornament exchange. This ornament may be something you have stitched or sewn, or it may be a creative or unique ornament in any form. We will also enjoy show and tell, so bring something to share or display.
