World Embroidery Day, July 30, 2015

Well now. Seems there is something new afoot. And why not. There’s a special day for just about anything these days. So why not embroidery as well.

Thanks to a post by Inspirations Magazine, I’ve discovered there is a World Embroidery Day.

It all started in 2011 by Sweden’s Embroidery Guild and is now celebrated annually. It’s manifesto, to celebrate embroidery and its importance to the world and “to be part of a joyfully creative peace movement”.

Here’s a link to Sweden’s Embroidery Guild and you can download read the full manifesto in your language here (scroll halfway down the page).

I have a hand piece I can attempt to finish if the heat wave doesn’t get me first (we don’t have air conditioning). Or I can work on some digitizing that I have started.

So readers, is anyone picking up a needle and thread and doing a stitch or two in spirit with me?  It doesn’t have to be embroidery.  Maybe there’s a button somewhere that needs attaching?
