ah! i totally missed posting about this; the opening was last night... darn, i'm a little late.
but it's okay! the show is up all month.
look look look!
sue, kate, and danny, the wonderful peeps at the renegade handmade shop in chicago have put together a seriously excellent selection of artists and works for the latest show in their spotlight series. this is show number three and it's called "the in stitches showcase." it's a cross stitch and embroidery group show featuring these artists:
clockwise: atlantic treefox, pinpals, lucky jackson, the time is now, moxiedoll, mucho design, lou lou and oscar, pidge pidge
gillian bates, miniature rhino, porterness
mary’s granddaughter, sissyfist, MummySam, et moi - chez sucre chez
holy crap, that's an amazing round-up, right?! i am bummed that i cannot make it out there... i am sure i'd be totally wowed and inspired and i would LOVE to meet some of these other artists and talk thread and needles.
and, last night, jenny hart, of sublime stitching, was there to do signings of her new book, embroidered effects. what an event, eh?
but it's up for a little while longer - so there's still time to see it if you find yourself in the chicago area. look for more details and directions here.
