Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge! I’m Mr X Stitch and I’ll be your guide to the best in contemporary embroidery. Each week I’ll showcase someone who is rocking the world of embroidery and textiles.

——————–

Laura Amiss is a textile artist from Amsterdam.


She combines free machine embroidery, textiles and handstitching to create charming vignettes.


Her work is reminiscent of Gillian Bates and Laura McCafferty, and yet has it’s own distinct voice.


Several of her pieces combine recycled and new materials and I particularly like the way she creates images with more than one layer, leaving long threads on the bottom layers to create a more sketched feeling.


Charming colour palettes combined with a nifty retro style means that these pieces really push my buttons.


You can see more of Laura’s work at her website, or on her Flickr photostream, and you can even purchase her works and prints on her etsy store.
