Kantha Embroidery

Kantha embroidery was highlighted on Sharon Boggon’s blog, now called Pin Tangle,  a couple of years ago along with a discussion on the autobiographical elements and symbols in embroidery.   At the time I did a little online research and found myself a bit amazed at what beauty can be made from this simple running stitch embroidery.   I had no idea the simple running stitch could be sewn to form many intricate designs…

The Kantha – Stitches page of Sasha has many more photos and stitch patterns… all of them lovely.  This is where the inspiration jumped up and put a spell on me for my embroidery of the little clothesline on my tea towel.

Sasha is a non-profit marketing page for craftspeople all over India, but there is also a considerable amount of information about these crafts.

Have a look… and have a good day. ;o)
