Forests of Sumatra
Museum textile archives are a veritable treasure trove of fascinating cultural tidbits, but not often in a form that is accessible or useful to the people that would most appreciate them. in 2017 I brought you an original sampler featuring Sumatran dragons and other Indonesian motifs from dozens of dilapidated stitched pieces. The Forests of Sumatra is a companion chart celebrating a wide diversity of trees and flowers from the same sources. It was released in Nashville 2018 for all stitchers who’d like to share in this tropical adventure. The sampler is 301 by 216 stitches and is shown stitched in a brand new shade of Gloriana Silk created just for this piece.
