Get ready to learn about and to see examples of Tvistsöm, and some of the uniquely Swedish pieces it was used to embellish. Tvistsöm is a counted embroidery technique that was popular for centuries in Sweden, particularly near Skåne.  Traditionally pieces were worked on a squared basket weave linen canvas with wool thread.  Pat will show you, step by step, how to work this lovely stitch.

Lecture with Ann Strite Kurz – Creative Adaptations for Canvas Embroidery – A Good Transition for the Hesitant Designer  

Many stitchers assume that an ability to draw is essential to being a successful designer.  Although it is very helpful to have this innate talent or take at least one drawing course, one can easily create a design from a number of readily available design sources.  In this lecture Ann will show a number of her canvas designs and will discuss how the various interpretations evolved.  She will also cover some of the basic design principles along with simple guidelines for handling color, balancing elements and handline curves on canvas.

This lecture will be presented via the Zoom web conferencing platform; all members are welcome to attend.
