Eclectic Row, Jamaica Hills, Queens, NY: All The Queens Houses collaboration

I've been working on a collaboration with All The Queens Houses over the past few weeks. Rafael approached me to convert one of his photographs into a cross stitch. I selected 'Eclectic Row', Jamaica Hills, Queens because I loved the different brickwork and the contrast of the yellow and pinks against the variety of reds.

Simple Stitches zine

A small zine I made of stitches for the embroidery workshop at Bootle Library.

Introduction to Embroidery workshop at Bootle Library

I worked with The Human Library yesterday at Bootle Library to put on an 'Introduction to Embroidery' workshop. Our workshop participants used drawings from the weekly Sketch Club run by artist Jayne Lawless or drawings they made during the workshop. We draw onto greaseproof paper and stitched through onto fabric using back stitch. I love that when people sew, it's like drawing, everyone has a different style. Hopefully we'll be collaborating on some more fun projects and workshops in the future.

Pottoms zine! Original made for Jack because we always talk about them. Round, old eccentric men (you get female ones but they're more savvy). A mixture of Monty from Withnail and I and Frank Spencer from Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, asexual, extremely unlucky, they have excellent manners and obsessive hobbies.
