"Thanks! I found the first and the last one, on abebooks. Just placed the order. Now I only have to wait and be patient :-)
Some Danish words look similar to German words...
And I'm a good friend of google translate :-)
"If you can share the name/author of the book, I will look for them in used books online sources. As long as they have pictures or diagrams, I'm interested in them altough I can not understand the text :-D (I collect embroidery books in any…"
"Hvidsøm looks a lot like Schwalm embroidery... Working in a hoop helps keeping the correct tension of the fabric. In Schwalm embroidery the "dome" effect means often that the chain stitch outline is too tight... with long stitches…"

"I don't think it has been cut... the lace is applied over the hemstitch, and I think that the withdrawn threads beyond the corner stop at the hemstitch, too. I, too, would withdraw only until the edge of the corner, but I know that many people…"
I enjoy all kind of embroidery and needlelace. In 2003 I started teaching embroidery.
From march, 2005 to april, 2010 I worked for the italian embroidery magazine Rakam.
In 2009 my book "Guida al ricamo d'Assia" has been published.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
I attended several courses in Italy, and I try to attend at least at one new course each year.
I'm a book collector: I like to have them available when I need them.
Let us know you are not a spammer. Is there anything else you want to say to introduce yourself to the group?
Stefania, saudações! Busco de você uma informação, se puder me dar agradeço. Bordei vários pontos tirados de revistas que importei, ainda no aguardo da sua que não chegou as minhas mãos. O segredo desse bordado está em bordá-los com pontos diferentes ou tem os pontos padrão para bordá-lo? Os pontos que bordei pode ser usado nos gráficos originais desse bordado? Obrigada, abraços, Algecira
Stefania, que prazer! Por favor me indique como posso adquirir seu livro. Moro no Brasil. Tenha ideia da felicidade de comunicar-me com você. Amo bordado de mão e estou trabalhando o ponto d'assia. Abraços, Algecira
Thank you for your reply Stephania, i went through a stage when I just wanted to try everything, but now am running out of time. There is so much other things to do out here on our property with 6 acres. No matter how many times I get rid of the weeds they grow again soon after rain.
But i do try to sew something most days.
Stefania, Your work is very nice, wonderful. Thank you to share. I read you searched a class about Japanese embroidery. I have not yet a website , I teach since 2007 in France I have now around twenty students who attend the classes of japanese embroidery . If I was helped to translate by a friend of mine who speaks italian very well (her husband is born in Italy) it will be perhaps possible to organize a class, here in Brittany where I live or in your town.
Why not ? Japanese embroidery is a large family all around the world as handicraft too; it's a universal language !
Four or five days are necessary for each level (or phase)
Best regards from Marie
I came to look at more of the pictures in the gallery, your work is lovely. I noticed the discussion about Japanese embroidery. I hope that you find a way to attend a class. Judging from your work, it is a technique that your will love. I agree with Nance, it is one technique that is better learnt from a tutor that a book. If you are ever able to join us in Bournemouth you will be very welcome :)
You might like to join the Japanese Embroidery group here. It is not exclusively for those who do JE, any one interested in it is welcome and you may find some of the discussions interesting.
just been posting a comment for Nancy and saw your comment about you having no teachers near you for Japanese embroidery. Have you thought of gathering some like minded people together and setting up your own class near you? There are a number of tutors in the UK and I'm sure one could be pursuaded to travel to you, you aren't that far away after all. Or of course you could also contact Mirelle and see if she would come to you.
