Global Schwalm Sampler – Update (18)

Now on to the grand finale: I recently received a package from Hong Kong with 36 (!) carefully packed embroideries.

Mimi Chan is a perfectly trained embroiderer with body and soul. She passes on her enthusiasm to young people through free lessons. She teaches her great skills in courses for adults.

When she found out about the Global Schwalm Sampler project, she encouraged many of her students to participate – both beginners and advanced embroiderers. They all did their best.

Of course, I can’t present all of these embroideries at one time – that would go beyond the scope of my blog posts. Little by little, I will show them all – in the order in that I opened the individual packages.

Due to another lockdown in Hong Kong, Mimi had to temporarily close her studio again. The work that had been started had to be completed on one’s own at home and then laboriously collected throughout the big city. Since time was of the essence, many embroideries did not include a reason for the chosen motif.

What is in all the small and large packages?

Have fun exploring the wunderful contents, looking at the diverse design ideas and discovering all the interesting embroidered details.

    • Ja, Frau Bischof, es ist fantastisch! Durch die globale Beteiligung werden so viele einzigartige Einfälle und Ausführungen präsentiert – eine große Sonderausstellung zur Schwälmer Weißstickerei könnte nicht mehr Ideen und breitere Abwechslung bieten!
