FREE-A New Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery Design for You

Our Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery International Guild (BDEIG, Inc) is 20 terrific years old in 2012. To help us celebrate the start of our next 20+ years, we invite stitchers to enjoy free B.E. designs - One-A-Month. These will be posted at the BDEIG website here, a new design posted each month, for one month only, and then replaced by a brand new design.

This is "Brazilian Bouquet", designed by Loretta Holzberger.
If you would like to see more of Loretta's beautiful designs, visit her website. In addition to Brazilian embroidery, Loretta specializes in needle lace and has also developed several beautiful stumpwork designs. She has also written several books. In addition to her needle lace and stumpwork books, she has developed some very creative work with silk flowers and Ganutell, a unique wire and floss method of making dimensional flowers.

Be sure to download the pdf file for this design; you are welcome to share it, but please don't charge for the copies you make. These designs are wonderful teaching projects for chapters or for your own projects.

Look for the next design from Debbie Kelley of DK Designs, and in May, I'll send in a design I have just developed for the Edelweiss flower.

Happy Birthday to us!
     ...and don't forget to become a BDEIG member if you haven't done so yet. You'll find a membership application here.

I have more to write in a day or two or three. I've been working on my design instructions for the new 2012 BE designs. And I've been putting together a lot of my stitch samples into a little crazy quilt. 

There were a few hundred left over, so I'm going to do some-exciting-thing else with them.


  1. I live in North Dakota. Is there anyone out here who can teach Brazilian E ?

  2. I just love the look of Brazilian Embroidery. An old friend of mine had a sister who lived in California and had access to some help!!!
