Jane, I have been looking at more of your work and it is gorgeous. Although I do not plan to learn Japanese embroidery as a subject, I would like to know of a source for flat silk thread and how to use it properly. I think that I will be in touch with Midori but am not quite ready yet. I have been in Canada for decades but am originally from the UK. I would love to have you as a Friend. You can see more about me at www.annbernard.com and
Hello Jane, As I'm living in the Netherlands I'm going to have my lessons in the north of our country, to be precise at Jessica's. Our teacher will be Beate Pietsz. I wanted to learn JE for years but couldn't find a teacher. Wanted to go to Bournemouth but all of a sudden I heard about this course and I registrered. Cis
Hello Jane, thank you so much for your welcome. I'm having my first class on JE in about three weeks so it's really exciting. I'm seeing the various pieces and I love them. It's beautiful. And I hope to get lots of information from you all. Cis
Traditional Japanese embroidery is my passion, I don't do any other kind of embroidery. I love looking at all the work everyone else is doing and admire the time and skill it requires.
What's your favorite type of needlework?

Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I am an acredited tutor of the JEC working in the UK. I run group classes in the NW with another tutor and also give private classes.
I am currently working on designing and embroidering my own pieces, you can follow progress on my blog below. I'll probably always have one or two JEC peices in my stash to stich because they are very beautiful. The Japanese Embroidery website below is an on-line gallery of work of our students. Please visit and check out their lovely work.
