Just out ~ Hoopla, the Art of Unexpected Embroidery by Leanne Prain. I am pleased to report that my work is featured in this 400 page book on innovative embroidery. Hoopla contains in depth interviews with artists working in the medium along with fabulous DIY embroidery projects. Hoopla has it all! I'm so honored to be a part of it. One of my Tattoo Baby Dolls even made the back cover!
Last Thursday Leanne was in San Francisco promoting Hoopla at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art during their monthly Etsy craft bar. Lots of craft lovers were on hand to meet Leanne and participate in one of the stitching projects featured in her book, Photo Feelism. Check out Leanne's Hoopla website.
It was a lot of fun meeting Leanne. Not only was I lucky enough to be included in Hoopla, I won the night's door prize! Since I already have a large stash of embroidery floss I'm passing my prize along as a giveaway.
To enter leave a comment about anything related to the art of embroidery, such as your favorite stitch or the kinds of images you usually embroider. You can describe or link to something you've embroidered recently, or to something you've seen that someone else has embroidered, leave an embroidery tip, tell a story about someone you know who embroiders, or anything about your experience with embroidery. I'll leave comments open for the giveaway through Wednesday, October 19.
