This snapshot is from last Peacock Advanced Class in March. A live, overhead-camera demonstration was given for better understanding of the intricate feather stitches.
We were grateful to welcome stitchers from US, UK, and France.
We were also honored to have stitchers who received guidance from Master Iwao Saito in Japan.
Because of the theme popularity, we are going to have the Peacock Class again in Summer:
August 8 – 12, 2016 with free optional stitching day on 13th
And this theme will be taught during Nuido Trip in Japan from:

For upcoming Advanced Class in August, we have been preparing for the fabric with gold leaf. It takes quite a few concentration and comittment, but it is fulfilling to create material for everyone. We are thankful to supporting members as we can continue passing on the Nuido, the way of embroidery.
At the Summer Advanced Class from August 8th - 12th, we tackled on the white peacock project. The stitcher is working on the transition area of shoulder and neck.
Progress on the head area. The beak is lastly stitched with couching technique with Kodaikin (antique gold) thread.
