Today was a full day that started with a wonderful lecture by Claudia Dutcher on Bristol Samplers. Learning about these orphans and the samplers they stitched was fascinating.
After lunch Maegan Jennett walked us through the basics of hemstitching and we had time to practice. Oftentimes the little girls stitching the Bristol Samplers hemstitched their linen before they began stitching. My hemstitching turned out pretty good.
Tonight was show and tell. Lots of talent in the room. I continued working on a perforated paper project.
A little bit more tomorrow and then all good things come to an end.
