contemporary embroidery designs

mem1 | Posted in General Discussion on

Hello Carol, I am wondering if you can help me out ? About 2 yearts or so ago there was an article on upolstering stools and i seem to remember the most wonderfuk embroidery designs used to embelish them .I am wondering who the artist was and whether it is possible get them over the net?

I love the designs on the threads embroidery sight and am wondering if you have any suggestions for sites which have more contemporary  designs than alot of the other sites offer.

    Hi,

    I think you're referring to the ottomans, by Saskia Wassing-Shepard. They are wonderful. Unfortunately, the embroidery designs she uses are not available, since she free-motion embroiders all her things. You could try that, using her designs as a starting point for you own ideas.

    As for contemporary embroidery designs, I don't really know of a place that specializes in that. Most of the larger companies (OESD, Cactus Punch, Amazing Designs) have some contemporary styles, but you do have to look. You could take a look at http://www.bullarddesigns.com; these aren't all exactly "modernist" in look, but Bobbi, the designer, has a nice eye for shapes and pleasing lines, so her collections are pretty versatile, and can be traditional or more contemporary in feel.

      How could I forget those?! And there are matching rubber stamps so you can do multi-layered designs.
