Sunday, the 23rd of May we are glad to invite all of you at the ... 2010 Festa del Ricamo
- Sharon Crescent of Crescent Colours

- Marie Suarez
from Belgium she will bring her latest creations, a delicate interpretation of cross-stitching works which are often mixed with the traditional stitches in order to create unique and particular embroideries. Moreover she will present her very original patterns created in cooperation with Vaupel & Heilenbeck.
- Nicoletta Farrauto
Italian artist well known and appreciated abroad as the designer of important brands like Blackbird Designs, and now also protagonist in Italy and of our catalog with her new collection of works and very original embroidery projects.
- Maria Concetta Ronchetti of Antichi Ricami
master of the Swiss stitch who will make you know with practical examples the executive techniques of her very particular embroidery together with her several old creations.
- Jennifer Manefield of Stof-DK (the already famous fabrics loved by all patchwork addicted) and Patrizia Girlanda (among the principal representatives of the Italian quilt/patchwork) will have together a sort of workshop in order to practically show their work among the several fabric cuts which will decorate the rooms of the Festa.
There will also be (but only with her wonderful charts and a little present for all of you) Gigi Ries, whose Letters by Gigi are a must have for all embroiderers.
We will also have the pleasure to introduce you to the first books by Casa Cenina created in cooperation with Fiorella Collection, a precious work we created to re-discover the great tradition of the Italian embroidery.
Moreover ... some other wonderful surprises are waiting for all the friends who will come on this special occasion! A unique chance to meet your best loved authors, see their works and, why not... ask for a signature, make some pictures to keep in your album.
The event is an exceptional occasion to meet these popular embroidery designers and see really closely their brand new works.
As it is now our tradition for the Festa del Ricamo all the designers will give to each visitor a special gift made on pourpose for this special occasion.
The event is absolutely free and it will take place in a typical Tuscan villa near Arezzo.
