A Visit from Hong Kong

Some time ago a lady from Hong Kong visited my exhibition and took a workshop with me. Mimi Chan is a perfect stitcher and interested in all kinds of embroidery. She graduated with distinction from the Royal School of Needlework in the United Kingdom with a diploma in technical hand embroidery. She attained the highest mark ever in the school!

She tours all over the world to learn different regional techniques. At home she teaches all she has learned during her travels in her TOUR Embroidery classes.
After learning about Schwalm whitework, she contacted me to arrange a visit. She had never before worked this technique, but she was familiar with most of the single stitches. So she quickly learned a lot.

She worked through a couple of my books, always showing in short practices that there would be no problem to finish the single subjects on her own.

In the Fall she will return to learn the remaining contents; I’m certain she will leave being a perfect Schwalm embroiderer.

She enjoyed viewing my exhibits, which show the many different possibilities Schwalm whitework provides. She took pictures and created a video, which she put on YouTube and Facebook.

And so, through Mimi, beautiful Schwalm whitework is introduced to another part of the world.

  1. Very beautiful work! Thanks for sharing the video.

  2. Yes, thank you for sharing the video, beautiful work! Wish to visit the exhibition too! 🙂

  3. Thank you for the video, it’s beautiful. I remember my visit with pleasure and would like to come back one day for a workshop.
