Inside every order shipped are these little cards. Upon first glance you may think it just thanks you for your purchase (which it does do that), but it’s also your care instructions. So don’t throw it out before giving it a little read.
Each piece may need a little attention once it’s arrived after being wrapped in a box and traveling to you. Along with that, is the image of what you’ve ordered. That way you have a visual aid when you unpack it and need to give it a little attention to get it in to tip top shape. As always, you can reach out to me if you have any questions when it arrives. 😊
I finally get to share images from a recent commission I had for the High Point Market Authority! Every year they host the biggest home furnishings industry trade show in the world, and this year they needed some contemporary installation art to hang above the couch seating area of the VIP tent, called The Point. I was thrilled to get a call about the opportunity and agreed to make something for them! In the span of a week I planned it out with someone who came up with the entire tent’s design concept, and a week and a half after that I helped to install the work I came up with. The two multicolored pieces you see hanging in these photos are knitted from fluorescent flagging tape (yes, from the hardware store 😉)
Schirmer & Blau A (similar to Cornely A) including parts for sale. Pls DM me for details.
This was the first and most simple of all the Cornely embroidery machines and was invented in 1865. It embroidered chain stitch (plate 39) and moss stitch only. Moss stitch is an unsecured chain stitch and was made by turning the looper forward and the hook of the needle backward. These stitches were worked on all types of fabric from the finest tulle or thinnest lace to the heaviest cloth and many different threads, such as silk, cotton, wool, metal thread, etc., were used to make the chain or moss stitches. This machine was used to decorate curtains, upholstery, coats and dresses. It was also used for marking names and monograms on linen, lingerie and handkerchiefs, for embroidering gloves and stockings and for ornamenting veils and laces, shoes and sandals. The chain stitch gave a back stitch reverse side of the fabric and this back stitch was often used for decoration instead of the chain stitch.

Modular felt wall pieces, prototype
🛑🛑🛑 I look forward to playing with color, pattern and dimension in these pieces! The best thing about modular design is that you are able to change up a space however and whenever you want!
