Purl Soho

After hours of computer work it’s very satisfying to work on handcrafted projects like these heirloom wool ornaments from Purl Soho. The New York City store was founded in 2002 and is a great source for knitters, crocheters, quilters and embroiderers. The kit for this ornament project is available here at their shop. You can personalize your design by purchasing the pattern and individual components instead.

Alison Holt

Totally amazed by these machine embroidered landscapes and seascapes created by British textile artist, Alison Holt. Her process of painting in stitches is as follows:  ‘Each piece is a combination of silk painting and stitch. The painting creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture.’

and her artist statement:
‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the detail in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’
