Got most of the hanging done today, tomorrow final bits, and sorting, labels… Saturday’s going to come and go before I even realize it, so I’m trying to slow down enough to enjoy this. I have to say, with only a few minor glitches, it’s been pretty wonderful. Here’s today’s peek:

And here’s a link to a nice blurb in LAWeekly (scroll down, we’re the 3rd show mentioned – many thanks to Shana Nys Dambrot for the shout out!):


So much stuff, but what good stuff! Tomorrow, the hanging!


Crazy art prep over here in stitch-fetish-land! Such great work! So excited for Saturday night! The work’s at the gallery, going to unpack today and start laying out; tomorrow and Friday actual hanging, and then Saturday‘s the opening. So crazy that it’s actually here, it was so far in the future for so long and now, here we are!

Finished up my contribution the other night. I wanted to continue working with the large scale cross stitch, but I didn’t want to make a large piece, so I made my first small(er), large scale piece, “Sucker,” 12″x12″:


Less than a month until Stitch Fetish 3…. where does the time go?? Just a little peak of a couple pieces by a couple artists in the show. Both these ladies were featured on Huffington Post Arts this year, Heather Marie Scholl and Sally Hewett, so proud to have them in the show!

That’s right… it’s back! Stitch Fetish 3 at the Hive Gallery in Downtown, Los Angeles!!!

 Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 12.54.02 PM


Stitch Fetish 3, at The Hive Gallery, will continue to explore the art of the stitch (a rite and fetish unto itself), revealing the secrets, desires, and obsessions lurking in the mind of the artist.  Works of erotica and titillation! Works of dark fantasy and longing.  Works of secrets never told, but long kept.

Artists, please submit stitchy works of erotica and fetish – feel free to interpret this theme widely.

Makers of all varieties of stitched work are encouraged to submit: knitting, crochet, embroidery (machine, free hand, black work, crewel….), needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, plush, appliqué, tapestry, needlefelting (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 componant)… 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 medum.

Submission Details: Eligibility: All artists over 18 are eligible. Work can utilize any medium but must primarily use stitching (or fiber). Works should be no larger than 24”x24” framed (unless you contact me specifically). Works must be wall mountable and ready to hang – sculptural pieces should be no bigger than 24″ at their largest dimension (again, unless you contact me specifically). Work must be original and created after 2012.
