First off thanks to everyone who submitted their work to Home is Where the Needle Marks. I am overwhelmed by the caliber of stitching out there; you are all amazing. Next, please bear with me while decisions are made. We only have so much space and received a ton of great work; we are slowly making decisions and will have the selections made by early April, promise!
Caesar… Caesar… beware… beware the Ides of March!
God I love calling people and saying that!
It’s the final day of submissions for Home is Where the Needle Marks! And oh, I have received some marvelous things! But I want to see your marvelous things (ooh, er)! All info on submissions and guidelines HERE.
Be careful out there today, avoid forums and caesar salads, and above all else…

We ask artists to submit works that deal with the idea of home. Feel free to interpret this theme widely. All types of stitched work are welcome for submission: knitting, crochet, embroidery, needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, appliqué… if it’s stitched, please feel free to submit.
Please note we are looking for contemporary interpretations of theme and medium. Read the rest of this entry »
