Embroidered Postcard (Sept. 25)
Silk embroidered postcards were popular souvenirs starting in the late 1890’s in Europe. They were exhibited at the Paris Exhibition of 1900 and reached the height of their popularity during the First World War when they were purchased by soldiers abroad to send home to their loved ones.
In this class you will be embroidering your own postcard as a memento of your time on the Queen Mary. The design of this postcard is inspired by the aesthetic of vintage travel posters. You will learn a variety of embroidery stitches and have the opportunity to stitch with both cotton and metallic threads.
This class is good for all levels and all supplies will be provided.
