Hundreds of Fractal Project designs, which were created by Japanese members, were introduced during 2014 Teachers class, Adelaide, Australia in October.
After earnest endeavors by JEC members, Japanese members were deeply moved and responded to collaborate this huge project.

This Wisteria motif is used for the Teachers Class curriculum. It is very challenging to stitch such delicate motif in few stitches. Stitcher must be keen to several important tips to express such flow.
Designing was a part of curriculum at Teachers Class. We took challenge on applying each individual's original designs on the blank area of fan. This stitcher applied Australian wild flowers/plants to pair up with Japanese motifs above.
The stitcher is working on the foundation which blends from one color to the other. This technique is often used to express the color change of autumn leaves.
This is a completed design submitted by a teacher from Teachers Class held in Oct 2014.
Such an enjoyable piece. Very successful color scheme and design motifs which were selected by stitcher. It is very effective to finish without the outlines to express the lightness of Jigami - the fan paper.
This stitcher has added crane motif to go with the design. The bird is trying to reach for the wild grape on the left. Playful yet effective design!
The stitcher is experimenting the Realistic effect: random stitches for the desirable flow.

It seems to me that she is outlining the Fan with metallic thread called Majorica.
Pinch and zoom in to take a look at the texture of pine corn! It is nicely done.
