MatryoshkasSet SMALL

New Online Class: Matryoshka

Taught by Laura Smith


Russian nesting dolls, also called matryoshkas, decorate a pin and earring set. Printed fabric is embroidered with Kreinik metallic thread and silk. The pieces are backed with fabric and a hardening material is applied to the edges to seal them and protect against moisture and dirt. Beads and jewelry findings are added. Color ways include blue-violet, red, blue, and black. Pin and earring motifs range in size depending upon color choice. Learn this quick and easy method in a series of three lessons spread out over six weeks. Method is transferable to any printed fabric--makes great gifts or ornaments.

Crown Jewels of EGA - our new gifting program


EGA is an international leader in the education and conservation of the embroidery arts. To achieve its mission, EGA presents exhibitions of needlework and fiber arts and maintains an extensive library on the textile arts. Membership dues and class fees do not fully support the costs necessary to accomplish EGA’s mission. EGA needs its members to further financially support its overall mission to keep embroidery alive. To that end, we have established the Crown Jewels of EGA. This gifting program is a commitment by individual EGA members to make significant financial donations to EGA over a four year period. Please consider making a commitment to the Crown Jewels of EGA.
