‘Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery’ by Leanne Prain is a visual treat covering 28 contemporary embroidery artists and their often humorous, always amazing innovative artwork.
Each artist is interviewed and their stitchery showcased with excellent color photographs shot by Jeff Christenson. After every artist’s section is a project based on the style and techniques they use. I really enjoyed this fun survey of the current world of subversive stitchery.

I want to add a little note of welcome to new readers. One of the main reasons I began my blog was to forge relationships with other artists. To that end, I love getting your comments and answer you by email. Thanks for visiting, and have a good rest of the weekend.
