About the Author

Gayla Partridge is a Texas native with a Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin. Her initial creative focus was stained glass; however, in 2002, she began working in photography, launching a successful ten-year career creating high-concept fine art designing and photographing intensely detailed and complex handmade sets, costumes, and vignettes. Gayla’s brings the same eye for fine art and detail to embroidery, her newest creative passion.

Interviews

A note from the author on her approach in Stitchcraft : Although I do provide basic patterns at the back of this book, I don’t feel it is necessary to follow an embroidery pattern. To me, the beauty of embroidery is having the freedom to make design decisions as you work on a piece. The projects in Stitchcraft are not written as an embroidery kit might be, with every single step and stitch listed. Rather, I provide patterns along with notes about how I approached each piece to get you started. You should feel free to substitute colors and other elements to make your piece unique to you.
