Stitchy Snippets - Urban Stitchery
Incredible urban embroidery is growing. Colourful creations are threading their way across urban landscapes and bring colour, humour and beauty to concrete jungles. Due to the large scale of this embroidery, it offers a fantastic opportunity for collaboration and is a great group activity in which communities can join in the fun! Here are some 'guerilla embroiderers' who are making their mark in Europe.
Miss Cross Stitch has embroidered her way across Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
