Needlework Show

The Needlework Show is up again. There are more designers than ever exhibiting in this forum. And this year many more "big name" designers like Heart's Content, JBW Designs, M Designs, Liz Turner Diehl, and Homespun Elegance have joined the show.

Today's picture features Cherished Stitches' "Purple Passion." Isn't it gorgeous? Of the people I hadn't heard of before, I liked her stuff and Always Time to Stitch. Always Time to Stitch has "contemporary" punch needle. I probably wouldn't do it myself, but it's very fresh.

As usual, many of the designers have derivative designs. Very derivative. Some also have what I think of as bad art: the pieces are not quite in proportion or something. And there's a whole slew of stuff that you think "Why would I buy that? I could 'design' it myself!" To each her own, of course.

Go! Visit! You may end up with a door prize!

Thanks for the positive comments on my designs. I do pride myself for staying away from the cows and sheep and go for the more contemporary design influences.
