Stitches On Canvas

Why shouldn’t stitches be on canvas?  Stitches can be sewn, woven, knitted and crocheted using plastic, bamboo, wire, animal and plant fiber to name a few.  Stitches hold something together to adorn the body, or hold someone together when nothing else seems to work.  Stitches are created using a machine or by hand producing added texture and dimension to our lives.  So, why shouldn’t stitches be on canvas?

A stitched Dorset Button sewn to a piece of silk stitched to a felted piece of wool, which reminds me of my favorite flower, the sunflower.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    Your work makes the case, perfectly, that stitches have a place on canvas. The use of canvas elevates the stitching, I think, encouraging us to consider it as art, for its own sake.
