Please join us for our May Book Club Meeting! We’ll be discussing Drawn to Stitch: Line, Drawing, and Mark-Making in Textile Art by Gwen Hadley.
When used effectively, line—an essential component of textile art—can convey texture, tone, form, movement, and mood. Drawn to Stitch offers embroiderers a structured series of exercises designed to explore the technique’s potential and develop their own creativity. It covers line and mark-making tools, materials, and processes—including printing and mixed media—and then moves into stitch, explaining how to interpret different line qualities from crisp and sharp to soft and diffused, from raised and overlaid to recessed and inlaid. Full of inspiring ideas, Drawn to Stitch includes stunning illustrations of stitched-textile work by the author and other leading textile artists and is a practical guide to using line and other forms of mark-making in textile art and embroidery.
