Japanese Embroidery Lecture by Embroiderer’s Guild of America Master Certified Judge Sponsored by Southern Oregon Stitchers

Japanese Embroidery Lecture Sponsored by the Southern Oregon Stitchers chapter, Embroiderer’s Guild of America<br /> Saturday, June 18th, 2011 10:00am to 11:00am First Presbyterian Church of Central Point, 465 West Pine Street, Central Point<br /> The Southern Oregon Stitchers Chapter of the Embroiderer’s Guild of America (EGA) is pleased to offer a lecture on Japanese Embroidery to the public on Satur- day, June 18th, 2011 in Central Point.<br /> Traditional Japanese Embroidery is a complex, beautiful, and exacting way of stitch- ing silk and metal threads onto silk fabric. Some projects are very lifelike and others are highly stylized, all using culturally relevant patterns. Threads are typically flat silk, which are fibers unwound from a silkworm cocoon and dyed but not spun into a twisted thread, and gold and silver metallic threads. Georgann Lane, our guest speaker, will talk about how she got into traditional Japanese Embroidery and the process of completing the ten phases which results in graduating from the Japanese Embroidery School in Dun- woody, GA. She will have on display her finished and in-progress pieces. The pieces on working frames have to be handled with special care.Georgann Lane began studying traditional Japanese Embroidery in 1986 and completed the demanding program in 1995. In 1997 she received her Embroiderer’s Guild of America (EGA) certifica- tion in Judging, and in 2010, received her Master Certification in Judging.<br /> $5.00 admission at the door (guild members attend free)<br /> All attendees are welcome to remain afterwards for the Southern Oregon Stitchers’ 17th anniversary celebration.<br /> Contact Betsy Smullen at 541-582-3596 for more information
