You get the gist. It’s the world’s least objectifying erotica show, so get out your whimsy and your fiber, and get making!! I can’t wait to see the stitchy naughtiness you all come up with!!



Get those submissions in for “Put the Needle on the Record!” Love what I’ve received so far. Today’s the final day to send yours in!


Just a reminder, only two weeks left to submit works for “Put the Needle on the Record,” at Twilight Gallery. We’ve got some amazing works and talent lined up already; can’t wait to see what you’re working on!!!

Hey all! I’m curating a second show this year, Put the Needle on the Record, at Twilight Gallery, Seattle! Very excited for this one, all music stuffs! Here’s some basic info:

Put the Needle on the Record at Twilight Gallery, Seattle, will explore the constant connection between visual art and music. They feed back and forth. Images inspire the music and the music surely inspires visuals. Cover art has been a part of the music experience since the first pieces of sheet music were published. Photos and portraits of musicians catch our imagination and allow us to feel what it might have been like to be there, at that show…

Artists, please submit musically themed works – needlepointed album covers, amiguri rockers, embroidered portraits, lyric explored (please push yourself creatively if doing this). All types of stitched work are welcome for submission: knitting, crochet, embroidery (machine, free hand, black work, crewel….), needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, plush, appliqué, tapestry, needle felting (i know it’s not stitched, but there’s needles and often blood, so it fully counts!), beading, mixed media (where fiber is a main component)… and any other stitchy forms i’ve forgotten (or woven or threaded or poked), please submit.

Please note we are looking for contemporary interpretations of theme and medium.

Please go HERE for more details.

It’s today! Today is the day! The deadline for submissions for Stitch Fetish 2!! Last year was awesome and this year is shaping up to blow it away. I want to see your stitchy, naughty works!

"Almost There"

“Almost There”





First, I’d like to apologize to those who saw my earlier post which disappeared; technical stuffiness.

Second, here is a picture for the sake of FB preview, so no one will censor this post and get me banned.  Let’s imagine these women are discussing the sex they had last night and embroidering depictions of said sex.

Just a month now until final submissions are due for Stitch Fetish (due date December 15th), my next curatorial outing at Hive Gallery!  The works I’ve seen so far are funny and dirty and so smart!

I hope you’re making something to show me… the devil finds work for idle hands, you know.

Sorry, I just noticed that next Thursday, 3/15, is not only the Ides of March, but the end of submissions (already!!) for Home is Where the Needle Marks.  I’ve gotten some fabulous submissions and hope to see more!  All info for fees and guidelines can be found HERE.

Home – a place of safety or danger?

A haven, a place full of shame,  where you want to be, a room full of old routines and identities… anywhere you hang your hat? How does the word Home resonate for you?

Home is Where the Needle Marks, at the Pop tART Gallery in Los Angeles, will explore the concept of home and all that the word connotes, highlighting the contrast of contemporary artists using stitch vs. the preconceived notion of “home sweet home.”

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.
