Findings is my weekly round-up of needlework, textile, art, and book news from my wanderings around the Internet each week. Here are this week’s links:
- Feeling Stitchy reviews the new DMC Coloris threads and shares a free embroidery pattern that would be suitable for them.
- Martina Celerin is a textile artist who combines tapestry weaving with sculptural elements to create what she calls “dimensional weavings.” Whatever you call them, they are gorgeous.
- “Needle art guilds across the country are building an embroidered tapestry for Canada’s 150th birthday.”
- If you need more book suggestions for your summer reading, TED has you covered. Some interesting picks in this list.
- Auston Kleon reminded me of this wonderful “reader’s bill of rights.” My favorites might be “the right not to finish” and “the right not to defend your tastes.”
- If you need some more pretty textiles to drool over, I love this Enchanted Forest series by artist Mandy Pattullo.
