The Education Department is pleased to present the latest in the Petite Project series: Golden Shamrock by Helene Ossipov from our Starlights Stitchers Chapter in Arizona. This petite project is an introduction to goldwork embroidery: specifically, working with Japan threads and learning to couch them.
Petite Projects is a collection of over 60 beautiful projects in a wide-range of techniques made available as a benefit to EGA members. If you are an EGA Member, once you log in you will see Petite Projects in the navigation under Members Only or by clicking here (You need to be logged in for the link to work). If you are not an EGA Member yet, join us and receive access to the entire collection.
We thank the designer and hope you enjoy this new project!
We are continuing to look for designers for future Petite Projects. There has been a request for more surface embroidery and ethnic stitching techniques. If you have a small project you are willing to share, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line Petite Projects. The projects are thoroughly tested and proofread by the education publications committee. If you need help in the presentation, we are willing to assist.
