White Wednesday -Teaching My Daygown Class!

I love this Daygown!

Today I am in Norfolk, VA.
I am teaching at the National Convention of the Smocking Arts Guild of America.


Purpose

"The purpose of the Smocking Arts Guild of America is preserve and foster the art of smocking and related needlework for future generations through education, service, communication and quality workmanship." 



I will be showing my class how to miter lace insertion evenly and neatly.  And how to attach the lace to the fabric.  It is so much easier to learn when you can actually watch someone perform the stitches.


We will be Featherstitching!!  And stitching Bullion Roses.

And learning the Old Fashioned (Antique) Double  Featherstitching.


And stitching A Bullion Flower in a Button! Very Pretty!

This is a two day class, so I will be teaching it on Thursday too!
Yes, we will get pretty far along on the Daygown and the matching Bonnet!

Wish you were here!!
