Wanda Lenz, Traditional Embroiderer


(Above and below: Wanda Lenz's Blackwork. Click on images to enlarge.)


(Above: This is a Leon Conrad design called Medieval Majesty and stitched by Wanda Lenz.)

One of the best reasons to establish an on-line presence for one's artistic work is for the ease of sharing a creative journey with family. Wanda and Susan Lenz are sisters. They share their embroidery through their blogs. Susan, the organizer of CYBER FYBER, lives in South Carolina; her blog is here. Wanda lives in Munich, Germany; her blog is here. They comment frequently on one another's work. Wanda Lenz is also the only traditional stitcher included in CYBER FYBER. She is an expert in cross stitch and blackwork embroidery. She has started goldwork and is experimenting with the use of stone beads in traditional, counted embroidery.
