Meredith Woolnough’s Embroideries Mimic Delicate Forms of Nature

Woolnough uses a special embroidery technique that involves a domestic sewing machine and a base cloth that dissolves in water after the piece is complete leaving just the skeleton. In a way, her process also mimics the natural process of leaves dying and drying up which, in turn, become the subject of her work.

Wow, I just hit 20,000 tumblr followers! Thank you thank you thank you for taking the time to enjoy my work in the tumblr universe!

It’s been a looong time since I’ve done a print giveaway and I’m thinking this is the perfect occasion!

You see, there are these flat file drawers I have filled with prints that have been deemed “unfit to sell”. These guys have little dents, scratches and blobs but are totally perfect to hang on your wall for FREE. 

So to enter the giveaway all you have to do is reblog this post! Next friday, September 26th at noon I’ll be randomly selecting a group of people to receive some of these beauties!

Make sure you’re following me on Facebook and Instagram and be sure to sign up for the newsletter at www.jamesreadsmerch.com for the first word on new releases!

Much Love, 

James
