Online Presentation via Webinar
Join us for an afternoon with Patricia Wilson Nguyen, owner, operator, and embroidery instructor of Thistle Threads, who will be our guest speaker and lecturer on January 27th.
Patricia Wilson Nguyen has been embroidering since she was a little girl. By day she works as an engineer for a Boston based consulting firm, by night an embroidery teacher and designer. Here’s her statement:
“Often people ask me how I got my start. I have been embroidering since I can remember – I come from a long line of really creative women who embroider, quilt or sew. The bug really bit me when I was about seven or eight after my mother discovered that I was “furthering” her projects when she was out of the room. After that we often worked side by side at Embroiderer’s Guild meetings. Then came a series of Youth Talent contests which allowed me to finally join the guild. I started teaching embroidery as a freshman in high school and was immediately attracted to historic and folk embroidery techniques. Hardanger and Japanese Embroidery being my early favorites.”
