About the Regina Stitchery Guild
Our philosophy is to promote and encourage the practice and knowledge of the art of stitchery in all its forms. In addition, it is the Guild’s intent is to create a fellowship of persons interested in stitchery who wish to increase and share their knowledge and to maintain high standards of design, colour, and workmanship in all forms of stitchery. To encourage all facets of stitchery using a threaded needle we offer our members the opportunity to learn and enhance their skills through:
- Programs and lectures at monthly meetings
- Specially scheduled workshops with highly qualified teachers
- Opportunities to participate at other Guild events
The Regina Stitchery Guild is a chapter member of the Embroiderer’s Association of Canada. This gives RSG members automatic EAC membership and enables them to take advantage of EAC’s wide range of correspondence courses and the opportunity to spend a week at its national seminar held in a different location in Canada each year.
Book Review: Digital Imagery on Fabric by Ruth Brown
Have you ever had a great picture that you would like to use in a project on fabric, but didn’t know what to do to incorporate the image into the piece? If yes, then this book is for you! The book takes you step by step through how to print onto fabric using a printer and describes a variety of ways to transfer images onto fabric. Instructions are accompanied by gorgeous photos of work she and other artists have done using the techniques described.
In the second part of the book, she provides simple instructions for more image manipulation using the Photoshop Elements program. Cropping, rotating, adding text, layering, creating positive and negative images—all are described with sample pictures to spark your own creativity. The book can be ordered through “Books for You” or borrowed from the RSG library. See how technology can enhance your creativity!
