Up and Down, In and Out: Embroidery and its Kin

Embroidery is an ancient practice, embellishing fabric for ritual and communal purposes. Although for much of the 20th century it was thought of as a pastime for ladies making tea towels or fancy aprons, recently it has appeared frequently in contemporary art. We are seeking outstanding needle-based, original work, hand and/or machine stitched, on familiar surfaces like linen, canvas and other fabrics and perhaps maverick approaches that might include paper, plastic, and wire screen. Additionally, show us exceptional examples of embroidered crazy or Trapunto quilted works, and hand-embroidered apparel and samplers. We are inviting proposals for 2-D and 3-D works and installations. Power up your hoops!
