the fantastic work of author and textile artist Ruth Singer. Inspired by historical textiles, museum objects, personal heritage, memory and stories, Ruth creates one-off textile artworks and products using sustainable and recycled materials. She uses hand-stitched construction techniques such as pleating, gathering, applique and structured stuffing to create dense surface texture.
JUDY MARTIN : Rough couching, over raveled weft threads, un-separated floss, and narrow strips of denim. It evokes Starry Night.

Read her post and enjoy the detail photos.
