Just too much to keep up with, Father - and I know many folk who know better than me, they simply don't post on topics I'd like them to.
Either way, there are a few of us who have been admiring the work of Novo Tikhvin for a few years. As I understand it, they have revived some of the older Russian styles of embroidery as well. Personally, I have a deep love for embroidered iconography (they're proper to us Westerners as well, especially if done in gold with silk undercouching - Opus Anglicanum, along with our silver or gilt bronze icons.) The most beautiful set of Byzantine vestments I've seen was also embroidered - done for a Ukrainian Orthodox priest (EP) by parishioners who still knew the old traditional craft. They cost a few thousand to make, and a few years of labor, but from what I can tell it was worth it.
My Grandmother practiced traditional American embroidery (and quilting). All I have left is a few pieces of table linen embroidered with larkspur in blue-lavender. The quilt she made me was left at a rest stop on I-35 in North Texas back in '73 - '77. That's always been a grievous loss.
