A while back, I shared a little about the Picture Smocking class that Cyndy Pond taught for the Lakes & Prairies Smockers, a chapter of the Smocking Arts Guild of America. This class was a weekend retreat held at the Textile Center in Minneapolis. Cyndy held a very well-organized class with notes containing tips and techniques for this art.
Recently, she shared the pictures of the garments that she showed the class attendees as examples of the uses for picture smocking. She gave permission for me to share them here as well. She said all of these garments were “Wee Care” clothing, and donated to the neonatal care unit at Fairview/Southdale hospital.
