Strawberry Needle Book Sampler
Another beautifully and usefully designed dropcloth sampler from the ever talented, Rebecca Ringquist. This Strawberry Needle Book Sampler is so fun and practical! Once you're finished the project you will have a fun book for holding your embroidery needles. This is a great gift for the stitcher in your life. The finished needle book measures 5" x 3" and for best results, we recommend using 3 strands of embroidery floss or size 8 perle cotton in your needles. Thread and needles are not included.
Rebecca Ringquist is a Portland, Oregon based visual artist. Approaching the technique of embroidery as a way of drawing, Ringquist's stitched works explore issues of identity through thinly veiled metaphors utilizing old fashioned imagery and double entendres. The colorful, abstract and often autobiographical works are both sculptural and painterly. She learned how to embroider in college in a feminist art history class, and has been inspired by the history of American needlework ever since.
