Bird Cage

Hi everyone

I’ve just been looking through the awesome program of workshops & classes for the Embroiderers’ Guild of America’s Seminar 2015. It’ll take place from 28 October to 1 November in San Antonio, Texas.

One of the classes that caught my eye was a Bird Cage by Australian designer Gary Clarke. In the class notes it’s described as a needle accessory disguised as a grand Victorian 3D bird cage.

As it’s Australia Day later this month it’s great to be able to feature an Australian designer. We can do this because the super talented Jillian Bath has stitched this piece and her husband Stewart has taken some fantastic photos. There are some great close-ups of the needlework for those of you who love a really good look at the detail.

So here’s the eye candy
