So, What Is English Smocking?

So, What Is English Smocking?

Especially For Ewe spends a lot of time posting about English Smocking but what is English smocking?  English smocking is a traditional embroidery technique that gathers fabric together into tight pleats so that it can stretch and return to its gathered shape. It is often used as a form of decoration on a garment with either pictures or a geometric design creating a pattern on the fabric.  Especially For Ewe will be sharing more interesting facts about smocking in later blogs so stay tuned. 

I want to share some exciting news with you, Especially For Ewe is moving.  We are moving to the  Cave Springs area on November 2 and I am excited to announce a studio to display what is available at Especially for Ewe.  Look for more information about hours and the location later in the month of November.

Let me introduce this week's special!!!

Old Fashioned Clothespin Angels

These old-fashioned clothes pin ornaments recall a simpler time for so many people.  The angels are either all white angels or white with a red skirt.  The wings on both colors are white with white halos.  These angels are crochet with #10 crochet thread and then constructed over an clothespin.  The halos are starched to help hold their shape.   Perfect for any angel lover, for your tree or for a package top for a special person this Christmas.

$3.00 each or three for 9.00 your choice of colors

Just call me crazy!!  Moving, adding studio hours, and adding new product and now a new show has been added.  We just found out about this show, and it looks like a keeper.  Come visit the vendors at the Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex of Chatham, Virginia.  The show is Saturday November 27.
