Shisha Embroidery Video with Erica Wilson

It is well worth your time to take a look at this video with the remarkable Erica Wilson. I am going to estimate this circa 1970s. Her explanation is very good with large stitches so you know exactly how to stitch the shisha. Also, notice her alternative suggestions for shisha mirrors!



Good luck stitching the Shisha!

Great video tutorial Debra. Thanks for sharing. Gorgeous examples! She certainly makes it look easy enough. I'm really anxious to give it a go now. I loved the look on denim.

Thanks for this, Debra. Watching Erica create the stitching around the 'mirror' has made it seem so doable! Perhaps some will show up on my CQJP.
I can remember watching some of her programs in the late 70's while I was home with babies. I wasn't really into handwork then, though, silly me.

Yes, I think this is the clearest explanation I have found. Watching and hearing her convinced me I could do it. I'll have mine done today!

Thanks for posting the video. It certainly took me back to the time I started creative stitching.

Once I stitched "on dry land" as Erica says, I had it!
