Illinois State Date 2018 – Windy City EGA – The Chicago Chapter of the Embroiderer's Guild of America
The Windy City Chapter will be hosting Illinois State Day 2018 on October 20th-21st in Chicago. We are excited to have Ruthmarie Hofmann teaching Earthsong II. This mixed media piece is a 5×5 inch miniature landscape of linen-covered felt mounds and backyard rocks nestled into textural stitches of randomized diagonal and crossed stitches in the 18 count canvas ground blending into padded French knots, Turkey work, spidery detached buttonhole and a sprinkle of bright beads. Tucked into a deep table frame for an easy finish, Earthsong II is a cathartic romp of anything goes.
