My birthday gift from my wonderful daughter, Shiri! We will rendezvous in New Orleans and spend 4 days together, just the two of us, with great music, good food and the best company! Can one be envious of oneself?!
Keep sending me your website advice along with recommended websites, (doesn't have to be needlepoint).
We are working on the Product pages. What do we show, what do we tell, and how do we show and tell it? We have come up with a solid basic plan but I would like to get your input, if you don't mind... What do you want to see when you browse a needlepoint website in search of your next project?
- How do you like to have designs presented?
- What information do you want to have available? (i.e., so you don't have to email the designer asking how big is the piece, what canvas is it stitched on, etc.?)
- If the design has multiple colorways, what do you want to see?
- Do you like options? With kit, without kit, with stretcher bars or canvas, without?
- Do you want to be able to browse on your phone device?
Take a look at this discussion on preemptive surgery for women predisposed to ovarian cancer. Maricormaricar, twin artists and stitchers, illustrate the article with embroidery. Beautiful, informative and thought provoking. Take a look here.
There are other creative embroidery artists who illustrate, Andrea Dezso -
and then there is Lorraine Loots. Exquisite artistry -
I'm so taken by these works of art that my fingers are itching to get back to some work on 40 count silk gauze.
Have you created anything on a very small scale? Send me photos!
PS - I've updated my previous post with web addresses for all the talented artists whose work I showed. My apologies for not having the links in last time, bad girl Orna!
Sorry about not including the links to the photos below!! You can check out the originals using the links under the images.
