In September 1998 I started publishing my own books. Now I look back on 21 successful years – 21 years of self-published books –
EMBROIDERY BOOKS !

The only way to print in small quantities and maintain affordable prices was to do almost everything myself. After coming up with the concept of an embroidery project, I had to divide the embroidery into easy-to-understand steps, photograph it and then edit the images, write short but precise descriptive texts, create print layouts, bind the text, and, finally, send the books all around the world.

Schwalm whitework, which still inspires me and which I have specialized in in the meantime, is so incredibly versatile that one cannot negotiate all the possibilities in one publication. In order to be able to present the individual techniques in a comprehensible way, detailed descriptions with good images are needed. Over time, twenty-six different titles have emerged – some of them also designed for left-handers. Almost all of them have now been translated into English; the most important ones have also been translated into French. Some publications have been printed less than 100 times; this doesn’t bother me because I believe it is important to pass on all the components worth knowing. Now there are only two topics missing; once these are written about, I believe I will have described everything on the subject.

Last year I was so busy completing my lessons for beginners that I didn’t even think about the anniversary. The 21st anniversary is now to be duly celebrated. Please celebrate with me!

For 21 days in September there will be various attractive discount promotions. It all begins on 7 September. Look forward to next week’s blog post announcing the first promotion.

And please, forward this and the promotional posts on to your interested embroidery friends.

Luzine Happell’s filling patterns | Crivos (?) por Luzine Happell

Today I found a precious post at Luzine Happel’s blog,  which makes me to interrupt  the pause that I imposed myself on my blog.
I deeply appreciate Luzine’s work and the hard work she does in order to preserve and teatch  the art of Schwalm work.
I have already mentioned Luzine and her wonderful books (German, English and French) on this blog several times, so I have to refer  this work that she’s doing on her  site by adding an image file with fill patterns, which in Portugal is called “Crivo”. Therefore, it is very important for us Portuguese people this fantastic reference since we have here fewer and fewer people with the qualities and skill for its teaching. Here you can learn with Luzine!
Still she is improving it with several samplers!
I’m afraid few people will read this post, my readers are not many I think.

Have a nice weekend!

Hoje encontrei um post precioso no blogue de Luzine Happel, que me faz interromper a pausa que me impus no meu blog.
Aprecio profundamente o trabalho de Luzine e o trabalho árduo que ela faz para preservar e divulgar a arte do trabalho de Schwalmwork.
Já várias vezes me referi à Luzine e aos seus maravilhosos livros ( em Inglês, Alemão e Francês), neste blogue, pelo que tenho que referir este trabalho que está a fazer no seu site adicionando um arquivo de imagens com padrões de preenchimento, que em Portugal se chama “Crivo”, que se torna cada vez mais raro. Portanto muito importante para nós portugueses esta referência fantástica uma vez que temos por cá cada vez menos pessoas com a qualidade e habilidade para o seu ensino Aqui pode aprender-se com a Luzine!
O site está ainda em desenvolvimento.
Só receio que poucos vão ler este blogue, os meus leitores são poucos…

Bom fim de semna!

Um dia será mesmo tarde!

Mandaram-me esta ligação que achei bastante interessante. As descrições em dicionário não existem e as que existem são diminutas, tem toda a razão Helder Guégués, um dia será mesmo tarde!

Fiz uma série de textos Coisas Curiosas em que divaguei sobre pontos e sua nomenclatura, desanimei quando fiquei sem grandes resposta a este segundo texto  Depois a “vidinha” impôs-se e deixei de viajar por esse interior, mas tenho muita pena.

Bom fim de semana!
