Motif for the Angel of Peace 2018

Encouragement to join Peace Angel 2018

Embroidery is a peaceful activity that is practised worldwide. With our peace embroidery, we again set a mark against the many wars and oppressions in this world. I invite you to do that.

For the fourth time, with my atelier I am now involved in an embroidery action by the Swiss group , Mrs. Ingrid Eggimann – Jonsson for peace. The motif of Ingrid is an angel of peace this year.

Depending on your mood, a variant can be chosen, combined or alienated.

You are also welcome to embroider in the studio Farbtexte by Britta Firedmann. Stitchers for Peace don’t have to pay a studio fee. You can purchase material at a unique price of €10. Of course, everyone else can also stitch. The more we are, the better!

The size of the fabric: maximum 36×33 cm lined. Material and technique is chosen by you The finished work should have a suspension so that it can go wandering through many shows in the year to come.

Downloadable motif (can be enlarged or reduced)

Works will be issued by members of the German Embroiderer’s Guild and Students/Graduates of the International School for Textile Arts.

It will be a special treat again, remember the date!

A journey through textile past and present

Around the exhibition in Freyung, ISTAorganizes a tour to special places, this time in the Bavarian and Bohemian Forest.

program history in short form

Monday ride with a state-of-the-art coach from Frankfurt to Freyung with “sweet stopover” at the Seidl confectionery in Laaber. The next day we go to the Melk Abbey in Austria, on Wednesday to the textile centre in Haslach and Czech Krumlov. On Thursdays we get to know Prague and on Friday Passau, then we relax on a Danube trip.

The exhibition is opened on Saturdays, and workshops are held on Saturday and Sunday. Alternative program for Non-Embroiderers is a tour through the National Park of the Bavarian Forest on Sunday. On Monday it’s back to Frankfurt.

A really great schedule with lots of highlights. Here you will find the details of the trip and the registration form. We are looking forward to 8 beautiful days with you!
