In this class you will learn the basic stitches of Hungarian written embroidery, a folk style that originated in Transylvania, Romania in the late 18th Century. Fun for beginners and experienced embroiderers, you’ll stitch a heart or tulip design on a piece of linen that you can later sew into a small bag, pin cushion, or decorative hanging or add to a quilt or clothing. You’ll also take home materials to create another embroidery as well as resources on Hungarian needlework and patterns.  Sarah will share her knowledge of the culture and history of Transylvanian textiles and her travel experience in Hungary and Romania.

Sarah Pedlow, artist and founder of ThreadWritten Textiles, is interested in traditional textiles, cultural preservation, and creating a global community of makers connected via cultural heritage skills. From 2012 - 2015 she researched Kalotaszeg written embroidery in Transylvania and made products with women artisans.  She lives in Oakland and lectures and teaches across the country.  She holds an MFA from Rutgers University.  You can find her online HERE and @threadwritten
