PUSH- the new book you must own.
Yesterday, I received my pre-copies of the AWESOME new book, Push Stitchery: 30 Artists Explore the Boundaries of Stitched Art, edited by the incredible Jamie Chalmers, a.k.a the MR. of Mr. X Stitch. This book features 30 contemporary artists using the needle as their tool of choice.
All of the artists utilize embroidery as one of their main mediums of artistic expression. The skill, scale, and approach is incredibly diverse. Keeping with the trends that I have seen many of the artists are working with narrative.
Jamie has truly created an invaluable resource to those of us inspired by the stitch. He has managed to put together the best of what is happening in thread all in one book.
The book is truly a gem and a MUST have in your library and you also cannot beat the price. The book is not quite available yet but you can pre-order yours here.
I am truly honored to be included in this book and humbled by the insane talent that it holds in its pages. Check out this link to see all the artists included in the book.
