Wouldn’t be wonderful if there was a gallery just for needlework. Imagine, nothing but various different forms of needlework hanging on the wall. You wonder around the room, amazed by the different stitches, designs, color, and talent. You find inspiration to finish a project, to start a project, or to change a project.
Of course, the problem with a physical location is the insurance cost would be on the same level as the Smithsonian; if not higher. Those of who stitch understand exactly what I’m talking about.
Well, what if someone somewhere created an online gallery. It wouldn’t have the same wow factor as a physical location but you could still find some inspiration. Embroidery Central in Logan, Utah has created just such a gallery, Hand Embroidery & Cross Stitch Galleries, that is growing on a daily basis.
It first started as a way for the local stitch group to show their finished projects without taping tiny pictures to their wall. It has since grown to include other finished projects as well. Eventually, they hope to include stitchers from around the world. Basically, you would be able to post your picture of your finished project.
They also hoping to cross-reference the finished projects with the product available through their store including any changes that the stitcher made. They have some big plans that are slowly being implemented.
I hope you all check it out and find some inspiration, Happy Stitching!
