Random Thoughts to Ponder

January 31, 2010

“A knowledge of Drawing and Painting is of great advantage, by its immediate bearing on the aim of this Art; although many persons who have scarcely any acquaintance with either, are extremely clever with their needle. But in this case the exception proves the rule.’–Maxims for Memory from The Ladies’ Self Instructor in Millinery & Mantua Making, Embroidery and Applique (1853)

Check out the websites for the Embroiderer’s Guild of America (http://www.egausa.org) and the American Needlepoint Guild (http://www.needlepoint.org) to find color and design correspondence courses.
