The Art of Stitch

An illustrated essay The Art of Stitch by John Hopper featuring Stewart’s work is now available here.

“Stitch can be metamorphic; it can be transitional both physically and conceptually. Cloth and stitch can seem at times to be as one entity, one indivisible world of meaning, a harmony of direction and experience”, says John Hopper, in this very informed and authoritative piece of writing on the ‘Art of Stitch’, where he defines embroidery as a cutting edge art practice that can span a broad spectrum.
