The embroidery festival "Tribute to the Needle" will take place in Port Elizabeth from 25 to 29 August. The main focus of the festival is teaching and the full brochure is available on the Embroidery Network South Africa website ENSA here. There are also lunch time lectures to attend, vendors for shopping and an exhibition of embroidery from 26-28 August, so lots to see and do.
I was first invited to submit a proposal to teach at Igahli in October 2012. I had just arrived in Brisbane for the birth of my granddaughter and it was a full 3 months before I returned home and could start work on my idea. Its been a long time since that initial exciting email and its really nice to finally see the brochure out.
