This Saturday afternoon, February 27th, is the final day of Stitch Fetish 4 at the Hive Gallery (open 1-6, Wed-Sat). Not only is it your last day to come downtown and see the show in person, we’re having a panel discussion on Gender and Sexuality in Stitch (at 3:30pm) and many of the (local) artists will be in attendance.

If you’re not in the LA area you can stream live – you’ll have to download Periscope and then friend or follow @thehivegallery – and it will be archived online after the fact to watch. I believe streaming live will give you the opportunity to write in questions during the Q&A portion of the panel.

Moderated by curator, Ellen Schinderman (me), the panel participants are: Billy Kheel (who’s just had a solo show in Denver), Emma Rose Laughlin (who was in Stitch Fetish 3 and is a current featured artist at The Hive), past Stitch Fetish artist Luke Haynes (who’s very busy with The Log Cabins of Donald Judd, a show of 50 quilts), and Ashley V Blalock, a multi talented artist and lecturer at California State University, San Bernardino.

This year’s show has been fantastic. There’s some amazing works still available, so come down and see them this week or check it out online. But I hope to see you Saturday, online or in person!


Yep! It’s finally here (isn’t it amazing how things are months away, and you have tons of time and then suddenly, BANG!, they’re here), the opening of “Put the Needle on the Record,” at Twilight Gallery, Seattle! So very excited! The work is fantastic!!

Here’s a final preview, and then I’ll post pictures tomorrow of tonight and links to buy online.

Hope to see you tonight! Please say hi if you’re there!!

I could not be prouder to a part of this amazing show, opening this Saturday (August 23rd) at Craft in America, and I’m terribly excited to give my first ever artist’s talk at 4:30pm! Also speaking Saturday is the super talented Luke Haynes (who was in February’s, “Stitch Fetish 2.”)!
So if you happen to be in LA on Saturday afternoon, come by and say hello, and check out this fantastic show.
If you cannot make it on Saturday, the show is running through the end of October and there are other events and talks along the way. I hope to see you at one of them.

Artist Talks: Luke Haynes & Ellen Schinderman

The Craft in America Center is located at 8415 West Third Street, two blocks East of La Cienega and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 12:00 – 6:00 pm.

Parking is available at meters in the surrounding neighborhood with restrictions, with West Third Street valet service, and at the Beverly Connection. For more information: or (323) 951-0610.

There’s two weeks left of Stitch Fetish 2, and I wanted to give you all more information about the art than you may have gotten at the show itself, and make sure everyone knows the works are available online as well as at the Hive proper.

Today’s piece is one you’ve already seen if you follow my blog, because I adore it and it’s maker so darn much: “(Don’t Mention It #1) Sex,” by Luke Haynes. The piece is amazing. A fantastic piece of quilted art made from recycled sports bras, boxers, and panties – I saw two girls standing looking at it in the gallery and one nudged the other and said, “Look, it’s chonies!”

The piece measures 24″x36″ and is $2200.

by the amazing Luke Haynes

Luke is a serious talent. He has work in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum, has been commissioned to make work for the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, and was recently one of three featured quilt artists in New York City’s American Folk Art Museum’s show, “alt.quilts”

This is a rare opportunity to own an affordable piece by a very busy and quickly rising artist. For inquires or to purchase please contact The Hive Gallery at 213.955.9051

What a lovely afternoon – if not a bit thundery, tornado watch-ey; but that bit was later.

I am in NYC and was lucky enough to meet up with Luke Haynes!! We went to MAD and I received the t-shirt I bought (best way to save shipping, ever!).
