    Funny thing is she wants to get this one done so she can join us in learning how to quilt.

    That is the most amazing needlework I have ever seen and I thought my mom was a PRO!!!

    Do they have books on how to learn that type of needlework? I've never seen anything like it, so 3D before.

    They do I believe have books on this type of needlework I will ask what is the best for you. I know Helen attended the English Guild of Needlework to learn these tecniques.

    Elle, I don't even know the the English guild is, I'm assuming a guild meeting in England? Either way, I've always wanted to learn more handwork. My mother was really good at those things. She would just look at something one time and make it...no pattern, no pics no nothing. She was very talented. She never taught me her art, but I started quilting before she died and I know she liked my work. That sure worked for me! But, I would love to be able to make something like that someday.

    Helen's work is fabulous. Years ago I heard about the English Guild of Needlework. I visited their Guild office in London and was impressed out of my mind! In order to join, you have to attend classes and pass a series of very difficult tests. So, every time someone who isn't quilter remarks how patient I must be to make a quilt, I silently think, you don't know about REAL patience! I'm looking forward to seeing the quilts Helen will make when she finishes her beautiful embroidery and starts quilting! Please encourage her to join us on the Board.

    I have been doing a bit of research and yes you are absolutely correct. Its a School for Embroidery and the tests are difficult and you have to learn more than one type of embroidery. At the end I believe you have a City and guilds Certificate. I will ask her more about this.

    that is so absolutely drop-dead wonderful that i hope when she finishes, she exhibits them in a way that doesn't allow anyone to touch them!
