Studies

v.
not to discipline the yarn but to coax it
not to tell the story but to ask it
This is my advice to you.

One of my preliminary study pieces for the Opening Stitches project. Opening stitches for this piece were provided by Alexis Yeadon and Susan Weisser.

 

Opening Stitches Project

In 2019 I am starting a new project called Opening Stitches. In this project I ask people to provide a square of cloth with one or two sets of ‘opening stitches’ on it. I will then take the cloth and continue stitching in response to the stitches provided to me.

I plan to combine the collected pieces into one or more works that may be exhibited in future. All participants will be credited for their work (unless you wish to have your name withheld).

You can follow my progress on Instagram @leonieandrewsart

If you are interested in participating please contact me for mailing details.
