2019 Advanced class Atlanta will held on March 4 - 8 and please reserve your seat as it is approaching fast!
Hello! <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>
Advanced Class introduces more challenging designs to all students who have completed the first ten phases. At the present time, it is the highest level attainable to students of Japanese embroidery.
We are excited to announce to you about 2019 Advanced Class “Reminiscence of Battle” which will be held from March 4 - 8 at JEC in Atlanta. Please take this opportunity to reserve your seat.
The motif is called Gunbai, or “war fan” which is a fan-like device used by samurai commanders to direct troops during battle maneuvers, and as a symbol of rank.
From old days, this motif is used for ladies’ kimono and obi to wish for guidance during the ordeals and turning points of life. May the wearers be successful and achieve their aspirations.
For the each design, there will be JEC color with line AND line only transfer. The choice is completely depended on your preference.
If you would like to select fabric with line drawing only design on Uchikake - Silver w/ gold dust, please select "Uchikake - Silver w/ gold dust".
If you would like to select fabric with JEC color AND line drawing, on Uchikake - Silver w/ gold dust, please select "Uchikake - Silver w/ gold dust - With color".
After you selected the fabric, you can see the enlargement by moving the cursor over the image.

I hope this class will provide a good opportunity to deepen the significance and experiment the techniques used for this particular design. Very importantly, we wish to honor each stitcher for her/his accumulated endeavors in life.
