What do a sewing machine and a pedal bike have in common? The answer is Harriet Riddell from In Stitch You
Join me for a day of stitch drawing with Free Style ‘Pedal Powered’ Stitcher, Harriet. Watch and be amazed as she ‘draws with the needle’ on her sewing machine. Harriet travels the world with her sewing machine & bicycle to create observational embroideries, documenting life in stitch.
You can see some of Harriet’s Free Style Stitchery in a previous post from Art in Action 2014.
A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the work of Louise Mabbs. Louise uses Mathematical principles to design and construct her bold geometric, colourful art quilts. In this video she explains the concepts and design theories behind these pieces.
Louise’s embroideries are inspired by her home near the sea – sunset walks along the coast, beach huts, wind mills and her love of the landscape. Filmed at The Festival of Quilts 2019.
