Simply Sublime.

I don't know if you've ever seen Austin-based artist Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching's amazing stitchery, but I've been a big fan for some time now and was reminded of her work when she was featured in the film, Handmade Nation. She creates amazing works of art with her embroidery needles, hoop and colorful threads. Take a look at these great patterns...sushi, vintage lamps, and even tattoos. They're brilliant. When I was high school embroidery was hot. You always had to embroider your denim shirts and low cut jeans, or like, you were just a nobody. I had one shirt that was completely threadbare, but I'd put so much work into it, I just couldn't bear to part with it. My own little work of art. Not quite up to Jenny's stitchery, but I loved it and wore it with silly school girl pride.


When Jenny's not creating her artful stitchery, she's making fun and unique embroidery patterns for us. Sublime Stitching has got a great assortment of patterns to choose from at only $3 each, including themes like Tattoos Your Towels, Sushi Bar and Scooter Babes. You can also order Starter Kits, blank 'canvases' such as tea towels, baby bibs, and pillow cases. A fun way to create lovely art for your home.


There's even a flickr group dedicated to Sublime Stitching projects from fellow embroidery enthusiasts. Lots of inspiration here. You can also check out Jenny's Sublime Stitching Book and create your own embroidered works of art.

I don't embroider but I cross stitch and have for about 16 years. I don't do it as often as I could but seeing these patterns made me want tof ind dun things to do with that skill.

I'm super proud to offer her patterns at our little store - they take all the guess work out of stitching - and are so fun! I've used a good portion of my stock for myself!
