Marie Antoinette's Shoe
A 2 day Workshop with Cindy Jackson
commissioned by the Ottawa Valley Guild of Stitchery
Please join us for an exciting 2 day workshop which will take place on 2 consecutive Sundays beginning November 24, 2013 and concluding on Decmber 1st. 2013. This will take place at Moncion’s Independent Grocer, 685 River Road in Ottawa.
This delightful three dimensional stitching project is completed on pale rose coloured satin with white satin applique. Stitching includes various forms of goldwork. The shoe is equisitely embellished with Swarovski Crystals and tiny seed pearls. If you look closely at the photo on the left you will see that Marie Antoinette’s monogrammed initials are carefully incorporated into the sole of the shoe in tiny crystals.
Don’t miss this one of a kind opportunity to join in on a 2 day workshop which was commissioned by the Ottawa Valley Guild of Stitchery from the artist.
