The Cutting & Stitching Edge – Logan McLain

Contemporary embroidery art via Mr X Stitch

Logan Mc Lain is a textile artist from Ireland.
He graduated in 2008 with an MA in Textile Design and has won several awards for his contemporary embroidery.
His contributions to a 2008 exhibition entitled “Faith in Form” are fine examples of contemporary embroidery. The irreverence of his work highlights some of the idiosyncracies of mainstream religion.
It is clear from his work that Logan has a great deal to offer the genre. I love the use of negative space on some of his pieces.
You can find out more about him on his website. This might be the first you’ve heard of him, but I’m sure it won’t be the last!


The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge is brought to you in association with PUSH: Stitchery, the contemporary embroidered art book curated by Jamie Chalmers. Featuring 30 textile-based artists from around the world, it’s a must have for needlework fans.
