"This was my very first bit of goldwork. My father made such a big deal out of it, I gave it to him. Well, the man being the woodworker he is, carved a frame with Oak leaves. He is giving it to me for my birthday."
Embroidery - all of it, but mostly Opus Anglicanum and gold work.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
I'm a self learner. I am starting classes at the Royal School of Needlework soon. I will have to attend the San Francisco location for a little while, but within two years we will be, hopefully, be moving to England so I can attend the main school.
Let us know you are not a spammer. Is there anything else you want to say to introduce yourself to the group?
I am not a spam bot... that probably isn't what you are wanting.
Hello, I'm Ren and I am an embroidery addict. I love every single type of embroidery. I took on cross stitch with DMC thread when I was young, but as I have become older I have started using silks on Opus Anglicanum. I've tried to stop, but the thread is too strong for me to give it up. My husband, ever the enabler, has agreed to support me on thread therapy at the Royal School of Needlework. Pray for me...
