Stitchy Snippets - TEXTiles
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.
