It’s World Embroidery Day!
Begun in Sweden just five years ago, this is a day to celebrate.
In honor of this fabulous day, I am including some of my favorite stitchers. The first is the amazingly talented Junko Oki. And while you might not associate any of these artists with “embroidery” as embroidery is typically thought of, all of them are working with thread in original and fascinating ways.
And finally I am adding a detail from my latest design, which has been influenced by all of these talented artists.
Let’s celebrate World Embroidery Day together!
