Graduation


Today it's the last class. Embroidery workshops season is coming to an end. It was an amazingly good experience, I've learned from each and every one of my students. I'm already waiting for March 2013 to start again. I won't forget all the stories told during classes and the uncontrollable laughs (I especially remember this girl's anecdote of getting trapped in a toilet in a bar in Paris and being rescued by firemen much to her embarrassment), all the pricked fingers and the silent moments. Thanks to all of you who came and shared your life and creativity with me. See you soon and keep embroidering!

Hoy es la última calse. La temporada de talleres de bordado llega a su fin. Fue una experiencia increíblemente buena, he aprendido de todas y cada una de mis alumnas. Ya estoy esperando que llegue marzo de 2013 para comenzar de nuevo. No olvidaré todas las historias contadas durante las clases y las risas incontrolables (recuerdo especialmente la anécdota de esta chica que quedó encerrada en un baño en un bar en París y que fue rescatada por bomberos muy a su pesar), todos los dedos pinchados y los momentos silenciosos. Gracias a todas ustedes que vinieron y que compartieron su vida y creatividad conmigo. ¡Nos vemos y sigan bordando!

Such beautiful work! I've loved seeing what your class has made Karen :) Wish I could be there too in March 2013, but at least looking forward to following your embroidery adventures again. Kx

Thanks Kylie. You know what I'd love? To do a workshop with all my blog friends! Wouldn't that be wonderful? If only we'd live closer.

Best wishes, Yoojin

Love your embroidery, it really is gorgeous! How about an online workshop? :)

Karen Barbé said...

Thanks you girls!

Elisabeth – I've given a thought about it but I'm trapped with technical issues (like a good camera for showing in detail how to make stitches) and besides I'll need to brush up on my spoken English! :)

Yo también me apuntaría a un curso para tus seguidores online sin dudarlo! Ya me imagino que no debe de ser fácil toda la cuestión técnica...
Esa foto doble y el bordado nuevo son fascinantes. Siempre vas un paso más allá. O.O
Besos.

I would love to take one of your classes one day – unfortunately, you live so far away! If you need an intern one day, just let me know ;)
