This workshop will give an introduction to three of the most well-known styles of Hungarian embroidery: Matyo, Kalocsa, and Kalotaszeg written embroidery. We’ll cover basic stitches and patterns as well as the history and culture of each style. You’ll have the option of stitching several patterns on linen that you can incorporate into a pin cushion, small bag, patch, or quilt block. Fun for beginners and advanced embroiderers. *This is my last class in the Bay Area until winter 2019-20, as I’m moving to Amsterdam in April! I plan to return to teach in the states, don’t worry!
