I’m glad to see that people are still pushing at the boundaries of beadwork. Karen Paust is keeping things natural, but doing a magnificent job of it.

The Cutting & Stitching Edge | Contemporary Embroidered Art from Mr X Stitch
Erin McMom is a needlework designer who is using time lapse video to record her work.

Above: Don’t Forget To Be Awesome

Erin has made videos of several of her designs being created and they’re really engaging.

Above: You’ve Been Hazed

Cool tunes and a nice way of stitching. It’s the sort of thing I wish I had the time to try, and Erin executes this idea really well.

Above: The Mythical Pillow

Erin knows what she’s doing and with a project that took 350 hours to complete, the time lapse video uses some pretty smart tricks along the way. A great sense of humour combined with some smart project management.

Keep up with Erin and admire her output at her website.
