"Embroidery in the United States is unexpectedly in revival due
in large part to the efforts of Jenny Hart."
Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum in 2013
Jenny Hart founded Sublime Stitching in 2001 as a new model for hand embroidery design and resources in the US. She first began working in hand embroidery in the summer of 2000, creating non-traditional, embroidered portraits of the famous and infamous in a traditional style of American hand embroidery. Recognizing a need to update lagging commercial design and educational resources for hand embroidery, she launched Sublime Stitching in 2001.
Since then, Jenny has become an internationally recognized fine artist and designer with works appearing in Vogue, Nylon, Lucky, Rolling Stone, The Face, Juxtapoz, The New York Times Magazine and others. She is an award-winning author of seven titles on embroidery for Chronicle Books (including Stitch It Kit and Embroidered Effects), and her drawings and works in embroidery have been exhibited and published internationally.
Hart's embroidered portrait, La Llorona, became a part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Collection during the 2013 40 Under 40 survey exhibition.
