Hungarian Written Embroidery with Sarah Pedlow
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Sarah Pedlow
In this class you will learn the basic stitches of Hungarian written embroidery, a folk style that originated in Transylvania, Romania in the late 18th Century. Fun for beginners and experienced embroiderers, you’ll stitch a heart or tulip design on a piece of linen that you can later sew into a small bag, pin cushion, or decorative hanging or add to a quilt or clothing. You’ll also take home materials to create another piece as well as resources on Hungarian embroidery and patterns. Sarah will share her knowledge of the culture and history of Transylvanian embroidery and her travel experience in Hungary and Romania.
