Stitched Samplers With a Twist

Craft & Design Yarncraft

American-born artist, Kate Westerholt, lives and works in England where she creates stitched samplers with a dash of modern pop culture.

Kate Westerholt creates original samplers with a 21st Century twist. Her work is a kind of cross-stitch time clash – Westerholt playfully adds snippets of contemporary culture to the 18th Century colonial American embroidery motifs she’s inspired by. Traditional pictorial scenes of figures, birds and flowers are inscribed with the vernacular of now.
