Painting With Stitches

I was first introduced to Rebecca and her fiber art through her pictures online. She works in both hand and machine embroidery, and her pieces are vibrant, yet personal. The majority of them detail her new experiences living in New York City.

Little did I know that she also started a pattern company named Dropcloth.

I am totally in LOVE with Dropcloth. Her sampler patterns are printed directly onto the fabric and arrive at your doorstep ready to stitch.

Her images and designs are carefree, colorful and reflect the free spirit that she is. The texture of her designs coupled with whimsical little details make you feel like you have fallen down the rabbit hole and discovered a new adventure.

Check out her website, her blog, and her new etsy shop. I, for one, can not wait to stitch up one of her samplers. I only hope that I can do it the justice it deserves.

Hi, I'm Pam - I've been a moderator for the Needlework boards on Craftster since 2004 and you can also see me in the Craftster Quickies video series.

I am a lover of all things vintage but I particularly have a fondness for vintage embroidery patterns, which I collect every chance I can get!
