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
Hello Jane. Thank you so much for the welcome. We spoke the other day about the Garstang class. I'm looking forward to the classes but just trying to sort out whether it's April or October I can make given other things going on. Really looking forward to learning JE. Im thinking of doing the phase class rather than the taster as the more I read about JE and seeing the various phase pieces etc, the more convinced I am that's it's for me. I need to book it!
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.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
Bournemouth with Japanese Embroidery UK
Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? 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.
