A recent assignment at school on cultural traditions and usefulness in social work group practice has sort of stirred up my head in thinking about my family and the traditions that they've had in the past, but not necessarily passed on. My great grandmother emigrated to Canada from Bulgaria, and if not for her, I never would have known about traditional Bulgarian embroidery. I'll share more about her story later, but wanted to show you a few images that exemplify what Bulgarian embroidery looks like in case you've never seen it! Overall, I love the geometric shapes, patterns and colours in it so much! I actually have a collection of pieces that my great grandma embroidered herself, which I'll be gathering up and taking photos of soon to go along with some of the family history, as well as what I learn about the history of embroidery in Bulgaria.
