Susan Cuss – Jacobean-Styled Flower

Susan Cuss – Jacobean-Styled Flower

“I like Jacobean-styled embroideries, but I seldom work with wool threads. They often make me sneeze as the fibers tickle my nose. I much prefer the shine and shimmer of pearl cotton, rayon, and silk thread. So, deciding that I needed a small, portable project to work on at Guild meetings, and during found moments here and there, I sketched a little design of my own.” 

The above is the beginning paragraph of Susan’s article on the design of this flower.  Her article contains a supply list, embroidery stitches she used as well as to how finish this lovely project. We are pleased to say that Susan’s article was published in the Fall 2018 Edition of Embroidery Canada, a publication of the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada.
