Stitch Work

I began stitching on unconventional materials when I was studying embroidery at the Manchester Metropolitan University in Manchester, England. I  began with using found materials and fabric and transgressed to leaves upon my return to America.  I generally try to use renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials for my art, so this was an obvious choice.

Needle + Thread

  2. Hi Hillary,
    I am Becky Guisler, your mom’s friend. She has been telling me for a few years now how very talented you are and recently sent me this link. WOW! She is right! I am so impressed with your artwork. She tried to explain to me how you cut art in to leaves or stitch them, however, mere words can in no way capture the essence of your work.

    I am happy with your initial successes and feel confident you are on your way for a thrilling career. I have signed up for this link so I can keep in touch with your work.

    Best wishes,

  31. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a
    doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  32. Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after browsing
    through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  33. I am in awe. I am a quilter and like a lot of other stitchery but yours takes the cake! I have to link to you from my blog! In fact I might like to interview you for my page, interview with an artist if you are up for it!

  34. Hey I am so grateful I found your blog, I really found you by error,
    while I was browsing on Yahoo for something else, Regardless I
    am here now and would just like to say thanks for a marvelous post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added your
    RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please
    do keep up the fantastic work.

  36. Hi Hillary,

    Your work is absolutely beautiful & such a creative idea! I was.wondering if you sold any of them Online? They would make such unique gifts! Just let me know where to go!

    Thank you!


  37. Hi Hillary,
    I am currently working on a natural based art project and love the idea of working into natural materials. I was wondering what sort of preservative you use on the leaves. This would help me out so much.
    Thank you,
