Another interesting medium is gold work. Comes expensive but is
difficult and challenging. Several of our Guild went to the UK and
took a course at Hampton Court with the Royal School of Needlework.


I read the blog of a lady who took flies to the UK regularly to take classes at the Royal School of Needlework. Here is entry with the goldwork she did:

Her stitching is truly gorgeous and I'd say it's a huge notch above your everyday hobby stitcher. She does a variety of stitching techniques in different mediums, and her blog entries make for some fascinating reading (even if you're only a lowly hobby stitcher like I am).
