Workshops, Lectures, and Events

I teach workshops on introductory Hungarian written embroidery, sharing my experience traveling, working with women in Transylvania, and learning the stitch technique.  My Hungarian Folk Embroidery Workshop covers the basic stitches of written embroidery and participants leave with a small, finished, linen, drawstring bag embroidered with a heart or tulip pattern.  I also give lectures on Hungarian embroidery, with a focus on the Matyó, Kalocsa, and Kalotaszeg written styles.

I also offer: Icelandic Cross-Stitch for Knits (Gloves or Mittens and beyond), Hungarian Kalocsa style embroidery (great for beginners), Hungarian Folk Embroidered Book Cover based on a hymnal cover stitched in the Torocko style from Transylvania.

Mexican floral embroidery and Ukrainian embroidery coming soon!
