Welcome to Day 4 of Wendy Week here at the Sew Beautiful blog! With the release of designer Wendy Schoen’s new book Mastering Shadow Work Embroidery, we’re honoring the renowned artist and teacher with a week of special promotions and giveaways. Join us on the blog every day this week for exclusive book previews, an interview with Wendy, and our awesome giveaway contests – a different one each day!
Today we are giving away two copies of Wendy’s instructional Shadow Work Embroidery DVD! Each will be paired with a floche sampler pack (in either “layette” or “spring” colors) from Wendy to help you get started. Details follow the videos.
Have you always wanted to attend our MPC School of Art Fashion and take classes from Wendy, but haven’t been able to make it? You’re in luck. We produce teaching DVDs that are as close as it gets to the real thing! Here is a quick introduction to Wendy’s DVD collection from the designer herself:
Today’s Wendy Week feature is an excerpt from today’s DVD giveaway, Shadow Work Embroidery with Wendy Schoen. Here, Wendy introduces you to the basic supplies you’ll need to get started with shadow work as well as tips on tracing your design. (Hint hint…these will come in handy when we share a free design and instructions on tomorrow’s Wendy Week post!)
All of the products and supplies mentioned in the video above are available from either Martha Pullen Company or Wendy Schoen Design. The rest of this DVD is filled with more great information, tips and instructions for shadow work embroidery, and would make a fantastic companion to the instructions found in Wendy’s new book!
