Hi I am new to Stitchin Finger and I am currently being taught by Jackie Hall (an excellent teacher) and I am in the finishing stages of Phases 7 & 8. Jackie comes to Cambridge twice a year so I have two Phases on the go so that I can keep stitching in between times.
I am teaching myself JE as I have done with all my other needlework techniques except crewel work. I am doing the RSN Certificate Course and am currently on my first module (crewel work) and enjoying every minute of it< Its a long (2hr) drive to Hampton Court Palace for my tutorial days, but so worth it!
to Kerry: is it maybe a kit by Margareth Lee. I thought of buying one but I wonder if the explanations are very good or not
Hi Alison, welcome to Stitchin Fingers and to the Japanese Embroidery group. Are you learning JE? It is very rewarding. I see in another comment that you are doing the RSN Certificate course.
Hi, I'm new to Stitchin Fingers and new to Japanese Embroidery so here begins my latest journey.
Hi Carol-Anne. Thank you.
Yes I think that some of the phases are different now. the one I know for certain that has altered is the fan for phase 2 and 3.
My tutor was Maureen Newman who I think studied under Harriet George and as soon as she graduated and I attended her class until I realised I would have to stop.
Hi Marie, welcome to the group. Actually, I think that you could contribute a great deal with all of your experience. It is a shame that your hands don't allow you to continue with JE but I am sure that the skill and knowledge you accumulated have benefitted your other embroidery. Who did you learn with? Which pieces did you stitch? I believe that a different set of Phase pieces were stitched when JE was first taught in the UK?
Hi everyone. I have just joined this group. I started to learn Japanese Embroidery when there were very few teachers in this country but I managed to complete phases 1 to 10 and challenge pieces about 12 years ago,but sadly my hands will not allow me to continue. I find that I can't pull the needle through the silk when stitching over padding so I returned to other types of embroidery which I am so glad I can still manage. So ladies, sadly I cannot contribute but I still have an interest.
These things happen. I have found another teacher and have e mailed her so we'll see what happens there
@ Kerry Mellow - I'm sorry to hear that you can't even get a response. Here in the US, many of the teachers are looking for students and trying to attract students to the art form.
Welcome tostitchin fingers
