SDAC member Priscilla Lynch reports that, “For the past seven weeks I have been participating in a weekly online stitch challenge presented by leading UK textile artists through textileartist.org. It has over 20,000 members worldwide and participants are encouraged to post their work on the group Facebook page. It has been fascinating and enlightening to see work from such a diverse group of men and women. The sculptor Louise Bourgeois is quoted as saying “Stitch is emotional repair”. Something we can all use in these troubling times”.
The original stitch challenge has ended, but videos etc. are still available at the textileartist.org website.
Textileartist.org has just announced the Textile Stitch Club will present weekly videos, workbooks and online discussion and feedback taught by a different textile artist from around the world each work. The cost per month is $27.00 US. For more information see TextileArtist.org
