BIG COOPERATIVE EMBROIDERY
Now I´m back home at my own computor and I will at least start to tell about our latest great effort.
The 9 meters long banner for the World Embroidery Day. 4 groups of women of 10 persons each has composed the designs and embroideried them within the 18 letters. It will announce this celebration of embroidery all around the world. This year it will be on the 30 of JULY in a big Magazine in the most south peninsula of Sweden, Smygehuk. And Mahila aur Pani Embroidery Club will contribute by this giant work.
The women discussed different subjects for their joint work. It could be animals in the village; Women´s and men´s work/ boy´s and girl´s what do they do; About trees in our village.They got paper and coal for drawing.
Marriage,(this subject created many designs);The drawings were copied on cloth big as towels by me.and then they coosed yarn and took each her part for embroider.
Here is one of four letters about animals in the village...
and a detail...
About men and women: the father is a drinker, The mother tries to save the son from following him, and a neighbour woman tries to help. There are also pictures of the men´s habit to smoke...
