Hoopla

Finished December 1
Hoopla: the art of unexpected embroidery by Leanne Prain, photography by Jeff Christenson
This is an interesting book profiling modern embroidery artists. It contains interviews, photographs of their work, and discussions of different trends in this art form.
I am an embroiderer who has stuck to more traditional embroidery, but this book opened my eyes to new ways of thinking about embroidery and got my creative juices flowing. Now I just have to make time for that creativity.
The book offers some project plans and patterns from some of these artists that will inspire and give a starting point to those interested in these new ideas.
