New Slideshow for Members: A look at Color Theory in Embroidery with Carol Lynn Stratton

Have you checked out our Slideshows & Presentations page? If you are an EGA member, you will be able to access a growing list of slideshows showcasing amazing embroidery on that page. If you’re not a member yet, you can browse a selection of video series also available on that page. Get instant access to all the slideshows, plus a collection of over 60 Petite Projects and more, by joining us here.

The latest addition to our Slideshows & Presentations page is a presentation about Color by Carol Lynn Stratton, designer and EGA member from our Canton Chapter in Ohio. This presentation takes you through the basics of Color Theory and shows you embroidery examples focusing on color value, intensity, hue and harmonies.  This presentation is a great tool to assist you when selecting colors for your projects, and to provide you with tips on working with colors. Visit our Petite Projects page for members where you can also get Colorplay I and Colorplay II, two projects by member Erica M. Cannon to help you further your knowledge of color theory.

If you are looking for a more advanced look at Color Theory, check out our Individual Correspondence Course Rainbows Bend: A Course on Color Theory with Carole Rinard.

We thank Carol Lynn for donating this presentation for the benefit of EGA chapters and members everywhere. Each slideshow also includes a link to download a PDF with slide descriptions which will help chapters wanting to share the presentation as a chapter activity.
