Needlework for Peace 2022

This year again, Britta Friedmann’s studio farbtexte is organizing the German group for the Embroidering for Peace project around Ingrid Eggimann-Jonsson. She is looking forward to a lively participation inside and outside the studio!

Working together has become more important than ever! Grab your needle and thead and join in!

Stitch! Group work is also welcome! Although Corona still has us firmly in its grip and peace on earth is constantly being reduced, we remain hopeful that our world will one day become a peaceful one.

The text says how you can contribute to the exhibition and when the project should be with me. If you have any questions, please send an email! Of course you can also come by in person

You and me

Embroidery is a peaceful activity practiced worldwide. Let’s set a sign with our peace embroidery again against the many wars and oppressions in this world. I invite you to do this.

For the eighth time I am taking part with my studio in an embroidery campaign by the Swiss group led by Mrs. Ingrid Eggimann-Jonsson for peace. This year she chose the motto You and Me , because on the one hand it offers great freedom in the choice of motif and on the other hand because it is a wonderful topic for philosophizing and reflecting while Needlework . What associations do you have with the word pair
“You and me”?

Are we opposites like day and night? or
are we alike like a pair of shoes?

Let the base fabric and thread do the talking!

It is planned to also exhibit the work of the Swiss embroiderers in my studio, let’s hope that the situation due to Corona will not get worse again by then.

You can find more information and a few idea templates to download in the PDF flyer from the Swiss organizers

Size of the fabric: maximum 40x40cm serged.

You determine the material and technique. The finished work should have a suspension (a frame is not necessary)

Deadline for submission : November 15 , 2022 (in person or by post)

If you also want to take part in the exhibition in Switzerland, you have to finish earlier:
