Just a quick update on the Hand Embroidery Network, Arlee Barr a mixed media textile artist from Calgary, Alberta has joined me as an administrator and will be helping me with setup and content. Arlee has been involved with textile arts for 47 years and produces some amazing pieces which you can see on the network or on her design journal here she has also added her very cool 80's lady pattern to the free projects section so check it out! There are also some new video demonstrations of hand embroidery stitches by Marisa Landa-Love an embroidery artist from Camarillo, CA United States. Marisa is skilled in Brazilian embroidery techniques and you can view her videos on the network here. A big thanks to both of them for helping me with the network! If you haven't joined the network yet, why not?
