Stitch Wars



There is an exhibit devoted to all thnings handmade and hand-stitched about Star Wars called Stitch Wars currently on exhibit at Bear and Bird Boutique and Gallery in Lauderhill, Florida. I especially love this embroidered portrait by Dianna Oates called "Thanks Lucas" (above) and Sewing Sammi has several embroidered works on the war in the stars, too.

Gallery statement: A long stitch ago in a Gallery not so far, far away, an alliance of crafty rebel artists was formed to honor the epic fantasy world of Star Wars. Wielding mighty tools of knitting and crochet, cutting through the great expanse of felt, these daring individuals used their handmade patterns of survival to restore freedom to the galaxy. Beginning July 18th 2009, their Jedi mind tricks will bedazzle you and sway your thoughts to the Dark side of the Art World. May their farce be with you.  On exhibit July 18 - August 29, 2009 @ Bird and Bear Boutique and Gallery in Lauderhill, Florida.
