Welcome to Gear Threads, where we showcase artists who are elevating machine embroidery to new heights!
Ladies and gentlemen: please direct your attention to the fine freestyle machine embroidery of Nicola Elliott, aka Picturestitch. Based in Manchester, England, Nicola creates custom embroidered wedding portraits. She works with customers to develop a piece to reflect their special day, based on their images or just their ideas, and will even incorporate mementos like a piece of fabric from a wedding dress.
But that is not all! If you’re digging the slightly spooky, Gorey-esque quality to these, then check out what else she’s been up to:
Nicola’s series of dark fairytale designs is particularly compelling.
