I am happy to hear from you and delighted to know that you have liked our pages.
this is not realy the one i wanted to show. but it was just lying so i tought of showing it.
I love the look of the redwork pieces. I am curious to learn how you and your students are using the finished work. I think an obvious use is on a cotton or linen hand towel or cocktail napkins, but I am wondering if you are using them for other functional purposes that won’t damage the designs. I prefer that the work has a functional use once I am finished with it rather than simply making a piece of artwork to frame (which is what I often did with embroidery when I learned it as a teenager). I appreciate the ideas you may have for me.
The samples shown here by my students are done over cushion covers which they can use casually in their rooms or couches. I thought this would be a good idea as not only is it functional, but is there for display always, and being young learners, they can always flaunt them to the others!
I think redwork done over dish cloth corners, napkins, table cover edges, cushion covers, basket covers, parts of quilts and pillows, baby dresses, bibs, or maybe even shopping bags can be functional, good to look at, and not necessarily damage the designs. I can also suggest doing it over curtains too. Hope this has given you some idea.
Thank you Sarah !! i have done a small wall hanging ! studying from you , am trying to do and i love it
What a beautiful tree! I really liked the way you have executed he stitches to make this hanging.

I have some redwork done in the early 1900′s by my great grandmother… I treasure them dearly!
That’s a treasure, Linda! Could you attach it and give us a glimpse of the redwork?!
You are fortunate to be such old redwork samples by your grandmother. Like Roxy said, we would love to have a look at it. So, if you want to share, you can do it here.
