Embroidery has in the past few years become a cool creative activity. As the record player and vinyl became a trendy thing to have and own – embroidery is now a trendy thing to learn and do. I also got on the bandwagon a couple of years ago. It’s a great activity for when you’ve occasionally got 10 mins to spare, there’s no pressure to finish it all in one go.
But there is also a great, wonderfully subtle and strong movement towards saying some powerful things with the thread. A movement that I love! Get it all out in a beautiful and creative way.
These are more patterns from Namaste Embroidery. A subtly strong statement within a beautiful presentation. I would hang this on my wall! This is actually an embroidery pattern – so you can make it for yourself! Find it HERE
Feminism and self-worth is always great. This little embroidery is small and subtle but packs a big ol’punch. Find it HERE
The final creator I am featuring is Moonrise Whims not only do they create these fun and funky worded pieces they also create works such as below. Full of weirdly intriguing imagery and beautifully finished pieces of art.
They also created the piece in the cover photo. An expressive piece that I feel everyone can relate with!
I have quietly admired these works and creatives on Instagram for a while now and wanted to write this short post as a nod to them and their work. Obviously this is a tiny collection of the protesting embroiderers. Please get in contact if you know of anymore and give all these and us a follow on insta!
