An artist in Stitch Fetish 2 who I’m lucky enough to call friend as well as peer is Meghan Willis (I’m even lucky enough to own one of her gorgeous pieces). Meghan works from photo shoots she and her husband co-create, and makes beautiful erotica embroideries from the images. Her stitching is lovely and delicate, and like Judith Pudden, Meghan is a master at applique, but hers is done with hand painted leather, which gives her work a dimensionality that is amazing.

A project Meghan has been working on of late is her “Accoutrements” series, three pieces of which are in Stitch Fetish 2. Meghan asks her models to bring their favorite “toy” to the photo shoot, and then, using the original source material, hand stitches the models and hand painted leather pieces onto linen.
