Stitched weightlifter shortlisted

February 27, 2018



My blackwork weightlifter "80 Kilos" has been shortlisted for National Craft Awards 2018: "Needlecrafter of the Year".


The depiction of a CrossFit weightlifter in stitch was created in 2017 for a Certificate module at the Royal School of Needlework. It uses traditional stitch patterns and threads blended and shaded to create a photo-like result. The work took 150 hours to complete.

Results are announced on Thursday 1 March at the Knitting & Stitching Show, Olympia.
