Day 249: Sticken im zwirnknopf


Day 249 : Sticken im zwirnknopf - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 249 : Sticken im zwirnknopf

Today's button has a general name, roughly translated as "embroidery in a thread button". The design is one that is taught by many German button making teachers - and in particular my dear friend Helene Weinold. Helene instigated the the whole One Button a Day - having worked the first challenge in 2015. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to follow suit in 2016. 

Helene very kindly gifted me her beautiful binder and handout sheets - originally intended for her workshop students. Of course, Covid has put a stop to this, so Helene is now able to sell these - if you are interested, please stop by her blog. I'll pop more info on my Facebook page tomorrow - poor light meant I wasn't able to photograph them very well.

Yes, the sheets are in German, but there photos! :)
