This week we’re giving away two (2) copies of Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery, written and compiled by Leanne Prain. This fun, unique book includes twenty-eight innovative embroidery patterns and profiles of contemporary embroidery artists.
Hoopla showcases those who take the craft of embroidery where it’s never gone before, in an astonishing, full-color display of embroidered art. Hoopla rebels against the quaint and familiar embroidery motifs of flowers and swashes, and focuses instead on innovative stitch artists who specialize in unusual, guerrilla-style patterns such as a ransom note pillow or bug-infested doily; it demonstrates that modern embroidery artists are as sharp as the needles with which they work.
The winners will be chosen and posted later this week.
I can hardly wait to read your comments!
