I recently met up with my friend Ernie Smith of Penn and Fletcher, here in New York.  He was accompanied by his colleague Alastair Macleod, who was in from London to make arrangements for a conference on embroidery.  It sounds very interesting and exciting, so I wanted to post information (and an eye-candy photo), so those of you who might be interested can start making arrangements to attend.

Here’s the information you’ll need:

Embroidery… in the New World

    This is hand embroidery---quite beautiful, and this particular example, which is called bullion embroidery, is also quite costly for materials.

    Wait - is this hand embroidery or machine?
