I am working on vol. 3 of the Encyclopedia of Embroidery (Bloomsbury, London) and have just been thinking about a new chapter for the volume, namely one on embroidery and the internet. In particular the role played by embroidery/internet during the Corona virus pandemic. I have been thinking about free embroidery charts, on-line workshops, free library downloads, online museum programmes, online embroidery contests, embroidered paintings of corona-related subjects, embroidered corona face masks projects, relaxation courses with embroidery (yoga-embroidery), etc.
Have you been working on a specific home-grown project? Or perhaps you set up or are involved in one that includes various people from around the world? We would like people to send in details concerning a project they know about or are involved in.
We need to know: · Name of project · Who is running the project · Where is it based · Aim of the project · What has been achieved · Website address (if one exists)
We cannot promise to include every single project, but it will be good to have a written record of various examples and how they have impacted your and other people’s (embroidery) lives.
