Jennifer Mitchell Needlework Designs
I stitch needlepoint belts and book weights in geometric, free-form designs. Each piece evolves spontaneously as the work progresses, with little preconceived planning. However, if a project is designed specifically for someone, I personalize the needlework with symbols and patterns associated with the client. The textile artist, Delores Dembus Bittleman, described her weaving method as ” the fibers show you the way”, which is how I proceed, by stitching through the canvas, I form connected shapes and lines along the length of a functional object.
