Stitchy Snippets - Textile Bakery

Original artwork by Beatrice Oettinger, featured by Julia Titchfield on Feeling Stitchy

Recently, I have met with the most wonderful and fantastic work by Beatrice Oettinger.

An explosion of floral elements, her textile pieces and dresses are beautifully ethereal and refreshingly inspirational. Beatrice’s garments are composed from silks, organzas, real flowers, wool and also baked dough!

In Beatrice’s words: 'Each garment is unique—an expression of a moment, a season, a walk—alchemically mixed and shaped—made for inspiration—full of seeds that can be brought back to life if you abandon them to nature again.'

Threadwritten Textiles by Sarah Pedlow

Recently I was contacted by artist Sarah Pedlow, who has been researching embroidery techniques and traditions in areas such as Budapest, Hungary, Blonduos, Iceland, and Oaxaca, Mexico.

Sarah is looking to fund her upcoming residency studying Dutch Textile Traditions with an Indiegogo campaign.

Contributions to Sarah's residency fund are rewarded with some rather beautiful embroidered items, from authentic embroidery stitched by women in Transylvania to a kit that teaches the Hungarian written stitch with materials, to a silkscreened project bag that can be used as is or embroidered with a simple chain or back stitch.

Stitchy Snippets - TEXTiles

'The slow rhythm of needle through fabric brings me immense satisfaction. To stitch something is to make a declaration of its worth by virtue of the time spent.' Effie Jessop

Original artwork by Effie Jessop, featured by Julia Titchfield on Feeling Stitchy

Effie Jessop draws inspiration from her fascination for language and combines portraits with words plucked from text messages. Through this juxtaposition of 'the digital speed of a mobile phone with the slow handcraft of embroidery' she records a moment and with her textiles forms a tangible, lasting heirloom.
