Lecture with Pat Olski – Tvistsöm
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.
This lecture will be presented via the Zoom web conferencing platform; all members are welcome to attend.
