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

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.

Hi, I'm Julia - an embroidery enthusiast based in Amsterdam with a lifelong passion for textiles. I like to mix things up by combining different techniques and mediums - my origami styled dress won the Hand & Lock embroidery prize. Join me on my exploration of embroidery with mixed media and fibre art.
