Japanese Embroidery Exhibit

I’ve got one last bit of crafty goodness to post before the holidays overtake me and my time.

This past September, my mother-in-law (Mary Pinto) presented her work in a Japanese embroidery exhibit at the Carlisle Arts Learning Center in Carlisle, PA. She’s visiting for Christmas now and brought with her these great photos:

Here’s Mary (left), posing with her work and her teacher (right):

And here’s an in-process piece she used during a demonstration at the exhibit:

Thanks to Mary for sharing her work with me and allowing me to share it here. Check out her complete set of photos in my Japanese Embroidery Flickr photoset, and her own Flickr page has a few more.
