Hi All,

I am the IT rep for a local branch of the embroiderers guild, where we run a Stitch of the Month feature. As part of this, I like including photos that other people have uploaded to the internet of ways in which they've used a particular stitch, e.g. interesting ways to use herringbone stitch, freeform cross stitch, etc.

As I'm reproducing others' work, I only use images which have a Creative Commons licence, meaning they can be reproduced for not-for-profit purposes such as mine. I currently use the Flickr search to find these images, but there's not many out there, so I have a couple of questions for you lovely Craftster peeps:

  • Is this a problem that anyone else experiences, namely the desire to reproduce images of inspirational use of stitch in blogs etc
  • Is there a resource already out there that has a large number of Creative Commons (or similar rights free) images of embroidery stitches, except the Flickr search?
  • If not, would you be willing to add images to a collective pool? I love seeing different ways that people have used stitches, and would love to share more if them with Guild members, to further inspire people to make amazing embroidery
I'd really appreciate your thoughts!

Thanks,

Heather

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

We have a great pattern thread here that have a lot of free patterns. One thing that I do for stitch alongs is contact a specific artist that I like and see if they are willing to do a pattern for the group. They are usually pretty happy to do one.

Maybe you could do a stitch along and see what other people do and ask if you can use their images for your guild.

I'd be happy to contribute some photos. Is there anything particular you're looking for to be demonstrated? I do mostly freeform but I can make some specific examples.
