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!
