Embroidery with Attitude – Sewing up your interior Part III

11 May

Rosie Geissler

If you believe that embroidery does not have attitude then you have obviously not collided with the stitching of British artist Rosie Geissler. She is a very passionate, dedicated embroidery designer with enthusiasm for image and typography  in her design.RosieG Embroidery was created in 2010 by Rosanna Geissler. All Embroidery artwork are created by Rosie her friend the sewing machine. The sewing is all free hand so no two pieces will ever be the same. Rosie’s work is certainly not based on the traditional “Home Sweet Home” cross stitch ideal, but she does produce work that is equally at home for children, through to a little bit more of an adult rating.  One thing is for sure….. “never underestimate the power of a woman with a sewing machine”.

Typography

Much of Rosie’s work centres around the use of typography and words.  The sort of phrases that will put a little smile on your face.

    Hi BCD – I have seen Rosie’s work before and been impressed. I love this ‘punked up’ embroidery movement that has been going on for the past few years. There are some mighty clever chicks out there (and the odd embroidering bloke, too!) Happy Friday! 🙂

      Happy Friday to you too….. I like the one that says F*** this I am off to the pub )but I thought it best not to post – family viewing and all of that), but that phrase has summed up many a day for me!! 😉

    Love it! I do like the pub one that you mentioned – had one of those days today, actually. And that brussels sprouts one in your post is brilliant. Have a great weekend 🙂

      The Brussel sprouts struck some memories for me too…. I have to agree with her sentiment
