    Hi, I thought I would share an update of the embroidery one of our ladies called Helen is doing. She sews with a single strand of silk thread.

    The design is one of her own drawings which she transfers on to silk material, she then outlines with silk thread and fills in the design.

    so far there is approx 18 months work in this one picture. I believe she was a member of the English Embroiders Guild.
