You know I am a member of the Swedish Embroidery Guild? And I take on way too much work just because it’s so fun… This spring I did the layout and text editing for an entire book, celebrating that the Guild has existed for 20 years! We asked the members to embroider a story in some way, and send it in to be part of the jubilee exhibition. Then we surprised everyone by making a book that all members got sent home – for free! I made the layout of the exhibition poster and the invitations to the vernissage too.
It was really fun to work with this project, and I love all the embroidered images and stories in this book! My embroidery is included too, of course. I gave the book a pink spine and title – and nobody protested. Pink victory!
Here are some pictures of the book:
And photos from the exhibition and vernissage day in Eskilstuna:
And I also, finally, decided to tackle the actual layout of the member magazine! This is the current issue out now:
I love that computer work becomes printable matters, like books and magazines! Actual things that live on the shelf of hundreds of people, to inspire for many years to come.
What a great feeling to be part of all that!
