Embroidered Books

I've spent the last couple of days making more samples.
This time some little origami fold books with embroidered covers for a class I'm teaching on Friday 30th September.

I'll be at Bee Crafty in Huntingdon which is a new venue for me.
That's because Bee Crafty is a new store, only open since August 6th so it's all very exciting. 

I believe there are a couple of places left on the class so I would love it if you could join us for the day.
Apparently there's free cake too!


  1. Those are very pretty Gina.

  2. looks like its going to be a great class...

  3. These are lovely Gina. Your students are in for a lovely day - free cake too!

  4. would love to come and Bee Crafty with you (sorry!!) gorgeous books Gina.

  5. The notebooks are lovely - it's a pity that I am just too far away to join you!

  6. These are two wonderful pieces. Hope the class goes well. :)

  7. Gina, I've been having a catch up on your recent posts, and have had a fine time seeing where you've been and what you've been working on.

    I never before knew about Henry Moore's work being translated into tapestry. It was very interesting to see the ball point pen drawing of sheep.

    I very much like the dense embroidery with the daisies. You are definitely on to something there.

    Best wishes on your upcoming class. If I lived nearby, I would definitely be there, and not just for the cake. xo

  8. Beautiful! I am making books with the kids in our craft club (age 9-12). I'd love to see the interior of the the colours that you chose.

  9. Gorgeous little books Gina, I love the leaves. :)
    Now you know I live too far away to go tempting me with cake! ;)

  10. Lovely covers - I really like the dark verdigris palette you've used.

  11. Very lovely, sounds like it is going to be a great class. Even the temptation of cake won't be enough to enable me to have a day off work.

  12. Lovely little books Gine - I do wish I lived nearer ....! Your Daisy Piece is just magical - love it!

  13. They're gorgeous covers Gina and the mention of free cake got my attention - pity it's too far to travel because that sounds like a wonderful workshop you're running there. Have to say how stunning your daisy panel is in the previous post - it's got such amazing depth and is truly beautiful.

  14. Dear Gina,
    I've always wished I could be in one of your classes! Maybe some day I'll come to England just for that.
    I wanted to stop by to wish you good luck with your MA. I'll bet it will all go smoothly. Part of the problem for me is that I only decided to do it about a month before classes began and I have commitments that I cannot undo. I'm hoping that in a few weeks, I'll get used to this new rhythm. But yes, let's support each other. We have so much in common including a deep love of cake!

  15. Just to say how wonderful your books look, do you on line instructions for making these. I am unable to get to classes for health reasons but I really enjoy making books.

    Maybe it is something you could do as I see from other comments that lots would love to do the course but live to far away.

    Love following your blog, waiting to see what you produce next.
    Hope to hear from you, regards maria
