Posy of Violets was designed to teach at the 2021 EGA National Seminar in Chicago – while the Seminar went ahead, I unfortunately couldn’t attend and so my friend and fellow tutor Kay Stanis took my class. The violet is the state flower of Illinois – and also of New Jersey, Rhode Island and Wisconsin! I just love violets and have little wild violets growing on our block – one day I will stitch these as well!
I decided that I wanted to make a posy of violets – a fully three dimensional little soft sculpture rather than a picture in a frame, and so they sit on a mirror under a dome. They are stitched in Gumnut Yarns Stars silks and tied with a Colourstreams silk ribbon. All materials are included in the kit including the mirror and glass dome.
These kits are available now!
