Brazilian Embroidery Class, online


I was very excited yesterday to start my first online stitching class. I will be learning how to do "Brazilian Embroidery". I have been wanting to learn this technique of stitching for a long time. The first book I bought in Brazilian Embroidery was in the mid nineties. I have look at this book many times and thought the stitches were to difficult to learn and put it back on the book shelve.

In January, I joined a yahoo group called "Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery" which started me on my way to learning this technique. Then a few weeks ago Rita ( blog) from West Virginia offered to give us an online class on the basic of BE. Rita suggested we all use the Edmar pattern kit called the "Circle of Flowers".

The Edmar threads are rayon floss which gives it the lovely sheen and smooth texture. They are wonderful to work with. I ordered the kit and the BE DVD from Peggy Crawford, of Flower Garden Designs, peggy@vt.edu 540-552-5106 who lives in Virginia.

The Brazilian Embroidery Basic Stitches and Flowers DVD by Brandie Milka of Brandie's Brazilian Embroidery lives in Edmonton Alberta, Canada. Brandie's email addy is oberon1@telus.net Brandie's phone number is (780) 476-9053. I learn by seeing and this DVD is wonderful learning tool. You can see above I have started my small "Circle of Flowers" project and I will post photos as I progress in learning these very lovely stitches.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Take care.


Hugs,
