We recently recieved a fabulous donation of Mountmellick items. The donation includes a few original sketches from Sister Teresa Margaret McCarthy, who has been described as "The pheonix behind the resurrection of Mountmellick Work." Mountmellick embroidery is a traditional Irish technique that depicts images of nature in a thick white thread on cotton jean fabric. It incorporates many interesting knotted stitches including a stitch known simply as "Mountmellick stitch."
If you are interested in learning Mountmellick embroidery, we have a class coming up on November 18th!
