Fiber forum piece, contemporary embroidery

Last April I attended the fiber forum retreat in Santa Fe. I was juried into the group the year before and have been very excited about attending. Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn led the workshop. This piece was created on a piece of fabric that I made from small scraps of sheers that are pieced together with an embellished. For more information about Fiber Forum, check out The Embroidery Guild of America.

A gorgeous piece of work. Looks like another technique I would like to try. Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn are legends around these parts. They live near me in Berkshire, Uk , and were the creators of the City and Guilds Embroidery courses at East Berkshire College in Windsor.
