Have a look and see if you can find your piece...ok you might need a magnifying glass:) We have collected pieces and stories from 23 countries. Thank you all for making the 5th Anniversary of World Embroidery Day a success! Please continue to stay in touch. We will be launching a new project within the next few months.
It is so encouraging to see how many people our All One Thread facebook page has reached! We just need one more country and then we will meet our target of 20 countries. So far we have pieces from Tajikistan, Pakistan, Sweden, Norway, USA, Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, India, Ghana, Palestine, Portugal, Denmark, Afghanistan, Japan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iran. Uzbekistan, and Australia! Such wonderful diversity.
Thank you for sharing our link with the Needlework Tapestry Guild of Victoria Inc.; Canterbury Embroiderers' Guild INC; and The Embroiderers' Guild of South Australia.
The collage is looking good!
The below piece is from Uzbekistan, submitted by Natasha Sim.
Only a couple of more weeks to go before World Embroidery Day. We continue to receive such beautiful pieces and stories. We only need pieces from four more countries to reach our target.
Here is one of our latest submissions created by: Kerstin Nettelblad, Sweden...the woman who started WED!! Here is what she says "Greetings from Sweden. Maybe this pincushion is a " selfie" of me the woman who started the World Embroidery Day."
