Painting with Thread: Reimagining Hand Embroidery

On exhibit September 26 to December 20, 2020

Imagine a world beyond the hoop! Hand embroidery is an art form stitchers across the world adore, including our artist in residence, Sarah Godfrey. Sarah's greatest passion is exploring what lies beyond the traditional hoop. While she enjoys creating beautiful wall hangings, her work experiments with different fabric choices and functional pieces like upcycling clothing. Come and get inspired! 

We’ve worked with Sarah Godfrey, our Artist-in-Residence, to create this Painting with Thread online exhibition for you to enjoy her art from the comfort of your home until Schneider Haus National Historic Site reopens September 26, 2020. Painting with Thread: Reimagining Hand Embroidery will be on exhibit at Schneider Haus National Historic Site from September 26 to December 20, 2020.

Schneider Haus Artist-in-Residence Sarah Godfrey explores embroidery as a marriage of illustration and fibre art. This exhibit demonstrates her love of nature, colour and whimsy in a collection of hoop art pieces, upcycled garments and paintings/drawings. 

Sarah provides a window into the artist’s process through videos of her technique.  The tools and family history that have led Sarah to become immersed in the worlds of hand embroidery and illustration will be showcased.
