Past Workshops ... just an idea of what we've been doing

2022 to 2023

Workshop participation is limited. Members of WEG will be registered first, then non-members may be welcome if there are still openings.

Workshops have registration fees, to pay the instructor and rent the facility, which occasionally may be waived for WEG members.

 

Each workshop will have either a Kit fee (the instructor prepares the kit for each participant) or a materials list (participants bring the required materials).

An Introduction to Brazilian Embroidery

Darlene Clifford, Regina Stitchery Guild

Saturday, Oct 22, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm and

Sunday, Oct 23, 2022, 11:00 am – 5:30 pm

Dakota Lawn Bowling Centre, 1212 Dakota Street, Winnipeg

 

Plan to join us for this exciting workshop introducing the use of exquisite Brazilian threads. Brazilian threads, made from rayon, give every project a beautiful, silky shine, but the threads can be tricky to work with. In this class we will learn how to “wrangle” the threads while executing lovely flower stitches such as Knotted Lazy Daisy, Cast-On Flower, and Rolled Rose along with several kinds of Stem Stitches. You will create this lovely image which can be made up into a needle book, used as a card insert, or framed as a picture

Cost: $26 (includes fabric, threads, needle and written instructions)

E-Mail the Programs/Workshops Committee’s Registrar Linda White at lwhite53@mts.net (preferred; or you can telephone Linda at: 204-889-7630). Ask to join the class and Linda will contact you with payment instructions.
