Talented Stitchers

While my family is visiting, there’s no time to stitch or work on any creative endeavors. But that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage of inspiring thoughts and images.
Here are a few of my favorite stitchers. There are many more, of course, but to appreciate each of them individually, I thought to limit myself to these four. Think of a big museum vs a small gallery. I love going to the MoMa, but am often overwhelmed by the creativity, people and artwork. Small galleries often show less, but invite the discovery of new artists. Hope you find one or two here you hadn’t heard of before:
The embroidery above and right below is by Christine Mauersberger, who writes an inspiring blog and has a phenomenal flickr:
Scottish embroiderer Susie Cowie stitched the famous pillow that Fanny Brawne makes for John Keats in the movie “Bright Star”:
See more of her work on her website.
Morna Crites Moore is a prolific artist from the US, whose layered work is breathtaking:
More of her work on flickr and her blog.
Last, but not least here’s Dorothy Caldwell from Canada:

See some of her 2003 exhibit in the Textile Museum of Canada here.

Looking through these is really inspiring me to thread a needle and get back to work…..
