Do you embroider in public, pack your knitting needles in the purse, stash your crochet hook in your pocket. I do. When I first started working in embroidery I was SO attracted to its portability. I loved that during a lecture, or at a coffee shop, on a long road trip, or at a 5 hour grad critique I could whip my little hoop out and get stitching.
As a born and raised Midwestern girl I have a lot of work ethic guilt and being able to work on my art while enjoying my life seemed like a marriage made in heaven. I also new that in moving to NY space and funds would be limited and in wanting children time might start to dwindle too. So embroidery quickly became my favorite and primary medium.
Over at HEN, a super awesome new blog, they want to hear your stories and see your pictures about embroidering in public. Read my little feature here.
HEN is a great resource since they have a tutorial on a new stitch everyday. The tutorials are very well written and photos included- so now we can all get stitching even fancier.
And they have a call for articles for their premier issue of a their new online embroidery magazine, Needle.
Where is your favorite place to embroider?
