Embroidered Books: Memories of Family and Travels

Past event
Jun 8, 2024, 10 to 11 AM

Diana Snyder of South Burlington will present a talk titled, "Embroidered Books: Memories of Family Activities and Travels" on June 8th at 10am. It is really amazing to see how she has used a variety of embroidery techniques to create the picture albums of her various travels and family memories.

Her biography:
Embroidery quickly became a passion in 1979 when I joined the Green Mountain Chapter of Embroiderers' Guild of America. I soon realized that I wanted to expand my teaching education to include embroidery, therefore I pursued an EGA Teaching Certification and Master Craftsman Program in Counted Thread Techniques, both of which I completed over 8 years. I specialize in ethnic needlework, but enjoy most techniques. Since 1980 I have shared my knowledge by tutoring, lecturing and teaching embroidery classes to all ages locally, throughout the United States, and in Canada. My favorite classes are with youth, watching their faces as they create their own embroidered piece. My embroideries have been in numerous chapter exhibits in Vermont and personally twice at EGA Headquarters in Kentucky.
