It's such a treat to share my art with a group who understands the time and patience required to make such time consuming work. Thank you NSNA!

My goal is to blur the line between hand and machine embroidery. This kind of machine embroidery is very much an art tool, such as drawing or painting, and is very different from the type of machine embroidery where a pattern is programmed and sewn automatically using a computerized machine.
