About Me...  

 

Elizabeth Almond, Blackwork Journey

I have worked as an embroiderer and tutor throughout my career and am especially fascinated with blackwork, whitework and counted thread techniques.

Having taught classes in community education, exhibited, worked to commission and provided charts of my designs, I now give talks on embroidery and organise day schools and courses for beginners through to experienced embroiderers, both in the UK and abroad. I am returning to Canada in May 2017 to teach at the National Conference of the EAC and elsewhere in Canada.

In 2008, I returned to college to learn about web design and photography and started my own website “Blackwork Journey” to promote the technique of blackwork embroidery worldwide. Having travelled extensively throughout the Middle and Far East, I have been fascinated by the architecture and designs I witnessed and these have influenced many of my designs, which I sell through my website and international distributors.

I also write articles for magazines such as “Just Cross Stitch” and “Cross Stitch and Embroidery” and have contributed to a number of books and calendars. I am currently working to promote a number of different techniques such as pulled thread work, blackwork and embroidery into quilting.

I have recently completed a series on my website called ‘Save the Stitches’ which I designed to encourage people to share their love of embroidery with me. This project proved so popular with groups and individuals across the world that I introduced a further project called ‘Box of Delights’ offering a ‘taste’ of blackwork in bite size pieces followed by ‘Pandora’s Box’ in October 2015.
