On August 1st, duClay Chapter was pleased to host Katie Puckett of KISS Wool Studios for another Taste Of workshop - A Taste of Embellishment and Surface Embroidery. Since Katie is a renowned rug hooker, designer and wool dyer, the project presented was a pincushion made out of wool.
Katie brought two pincushions that she made for inspiration.
Katie led us through the process step by step. First was to page through the many books she brought for inspiration and ideas for stitches to use for surface embroidery.
Our members brought a wide variety of embellishments and shared with each other so the options really were limitless.
Each pincushion is different and it's really fun to see the individuality of each pincushion.
We'd like to thank Katie and our members for a delightful day. Of course, all of the photos taken today aren't included on this blog post. You can see more in our Flickr Album.
