"Add a new layer of detail to your embroidery projects with this simple technique of floss blending! Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching shows us a clever way of separating and combining floss to achieve effects like faux bois (wood grain) and shimmering metallic flames. Be sure to watch Jenny's entire playlist of embroidery basics and related needlework projects!
Jenny Hart first tried embroidery in the summer of 2000 and quickly became known for her stitched portraits of the famous and infamous. Her works have appeared in numerous books and magazines including Vogue, Rolling Stone, BUST, Nylon & Juxtapoz. She founded Sublime Stitching in 2001 with a new model for embroidery design and resources. Since then, Hart has become an internationally recognized fine artist and designer. She has authored eight titles on embroidery for Chronicle Books, and her drawings and works in embroidery have been exhibited and published internationally. In 2012 the Renwick gallery intends to acquire her artwork for the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
