    Is embroidery ladies' work? How do you get started?

    in Hobbies

    As a younger woman I did a LOT of needlecraft type projects. I would just get a pattern, get some yarn or thread and go at it. The finished project wasn't the main thing. I used to just roll the finished product up and put it into a drawer. Years later my most excellent sister in law turned some of them into pillows. 
    Hours and hours of handiwork went into those projects and now they decorate my home. I don't have a lot of decorationsaround the house unless I made them myself or the kids made them. I enjoy the process of getting the parts of the project, spending the time working on the project and putting teh embroidered part of the project in a drawer. I don't need to finish it. What do you do with it all?
    When my parents moved down to Florida, they asked my brothers and me to take what we wanted so they could move more easily. I have now inherited embroidery projects my mother's family had made in the early 1900s. Simple projects with a single color and basically a single stitch they used as a decoration for the simple kitchen. Those projects made it through the War, were moved from Hungary to Germany to the USA. Someone thought they were worthy of saving, so now I have them. 
    Join me as I reminice and talk about the projects I had started and finished before I became a dental hygiene know-it-all.

    Many of the projects in the picture show are my projects. The pillows are mine, the table cloth cross stitch is mine, the dino and the iris pictures are my projects. The simple projects are my family hand me downs.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with Jewelry Artist, Writer and Teacher Julia Lowther

    in Art

     


     


    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday May 21st, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST is jewelry artist Julia Lowther.


    We invite you to listen to this LIVE interview and participate in this live interview by logging onto the chatroom on Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  


     


    About Julia:


    "I was born in rural Virginia. At 8, I moved with my family to the remote Quaker community of Monteverde in the tropical mountains of Costa Rica. If things broke, you fixed them, if you needed something you didn’t have, you created it out of what you did have or did without it. From this up bringing I inherited a delight in the engineering puzzles of inventing and building, and an easy patience with the general processes of making things.


     


    Growing up, my hands were always busy with embroidery, crocheting, weaving, and other fiber arts. I received professional instruction in painting and drawing as well, but only discovered metal work and jewelry when I moved to Seattle, Washington in 1996. Early in my experiments with metal I gravitated to chains.  The manual dexterity gained from decades of handwork and needlework served me well, and translated nicely to linking and knitting with wire.


     


    Today I still live in Seattle, now writing articles and teaching classes on chain making, with work showcased in numerous books & magazines."
