a common thread...

As there are both quilters and stitchers among us, I'd thought you might enjoy hearing about a new exhibition of artistic embroidery I came across recently.

Named Needle Work Needle Play, it is an exhibition featuring handmade creations from nine of Australia's best contemporary embroiderers. The exhibits include pieces made with coloured twine, soft sculptures, portraiture and jewellery.

For textile art lovers, here is a taste of work from some of the exhibiting artists...

For more innovative and amazing behind the scenes photos, as well as interviews with the artists, I encourage you to go and take a look at their amazing blog.

Opening night is on Friday, August 10 at the Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne and runs until Thursday August 23.
