I Heart Jenny

Jenny Hart has reinvented embroidery. This lost art form that used to consist of flowered dish towels and pillow cases, has been lifted on to another level. Just look at these amazing portraits of Dolly Parton and Iggy Pop. Jenny was born in Iowa City, but is now based out of Austin, Texas.  She has shown her work in both group and solo exhibitions and founded her own design company, Sublime Stitching. Sublime Stitching offers kits, books, gifts, and tools to get more people back to this creative craft that's been all but forgotten. Her books offer unique iron on transfers of things like rockin' guitars, robots, martinis, and tattoo inspired designs. Jenny has totally transformed embroidery, just take a look...it's not your Grandma's stitches!
