Title: Sunday Workshop -Blackwork Embroidery
Blackwork Embroidery Workshop (Plus Kids Embroidery!)
Sunday, March 11 at noon - 2:00 pm (or however late we need to go)

Ever been curious about the stunningly detailed blackwork embroidery  
popular during the later periods? In this workshop you will learn the basic  
techniques of blackwork, including the Holbein (double running) stitch and  
backstitch, and tips on preparing your ground cloth, starting and stopping  
stitches, and using beeswax to strengthen and aid stitching. No embroidery  
experience necessary! Participants will receive a "make-and-take" blackwork  
kit that includes everything you need to make a small needlebook with a  
blackworked embroidery cover (thread, needle, cloth, beeswax, and  
instructional booklet). When the project is complete, you have a small  
needlebook that fits neatly into the lid of a small wooden box (also  
provided). Bring a pair of scissors. Please RSVP to Genoveva von Lübeck at  
genovevavonlubeck at gmail.com

ALSO: All kids are invited to join us (with a parent present) as my son  
Alexander also wants to teach and has made up some kids embroidery kits as  
well. He'll demonstrate simple embroidery stitches that kids can master  
easily, plus offer some experiments to try. His kits come with thread,  
needle, Aida cloth, and beads! Any kids coming should also RSVP so we can  
ensure he brings enough kits.

There is NO fee for the kits. All we ask is that if you show us a photo of  
your progress -- and if you finish your project, and show it to us at a  
future event, we even have a little reward for you!
When: Sun Mar 11 12pm – 2pm Eastern Time
Where: At the fighter practice, in the room outside the Anderson room 530  
S. State Street, Ann Arbor, MI (Michigan Union - Anderson Room) (map
