I`m very interested in japanese embroidery too.Unfortunately I don`t have classes here in Frankfurt .nearest place to learn it is in Cologne. I have to check, if it`s possible to go there once in a while to attend classes.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
at school :)
Back in my time, handiwork was mandatory at school. (actually, it still is in all schools in Estonia). We started at 4th degree by learning to crochet. Then knitting, stitching and sewing. We also had cooking classes:)
Let us know you are not a spammer. Is there anything else you want to say to introduce yourself to the group?
Oh, yes, I`m estonian by nationality, but I live with my family in Germany. I`d love to integrate embroidery to some income supporting activity.
Apple and eve, Hallo! i live in Berlin but I am originally from the Philippines. I also love to take the japanese embroidery course in Köln. I still cant do it because of financial reasons. lol! hopefully soon. liebe grüße--vincent
Thank You for letting me know :) It`s always nice to receive some feedback :) especially positive one :D
Please contact me prior buying anything from me, I`d like to make special offer for you , OK?
Yes, I read about Beate Pietz too. She has some classes or workshops at Japan Culture Center in Cologne. But I think they have summer holidays now. So I have to check out their page to not miss her classes. I so want to learn Japanese embroidery now!!!!!!
I forgot to say when I added my welcome to the JE group. My niece loved her little bunny I got from you. I'll be back soon to get another one for my cousins little girl.
Beate Pietzsch teaches in Cologne (she's on the JEC list of tutors), she learned from the same tutor as I and is an incredible stitcher. If you get to study with her you will be very lucky.
