Sinister Stitch Episode One Launched… and the Delicious Thwack of a Universal High Five

Wow.  Just, Wow.  Not only has my amazing tribe of embroidery comrades taken on the BIG job of buoying my sleep-deprived spirits through video editing, stitchy contract negotiations, and a never ending launch campaign of email-blogpost-interview-followup-repeat-repeat CRAZINESS… but NOW they’re uniting into a massive amoeba of Sinister Stitch Promotion. I am so stunned… I’ve always been of a mind that if you build it, they will come… but being SO new to video as a medium, I’ve just had my head buried to deliver. After so many days turned to night turned back to day without sleep, my husband and I have literally LIVED this project all month. It is at once exhausting and exhilarating…

Please remember to visit the Kickstarter if you haven’t done so and pitch in whatever you can. I’m 20% funded, but still need a couple of external hard drives, another camera, and to be able to transport the Sinisters to their engagements — If just 145 people will pledge at $55 to memorialize a dearly departed stitching loved one as a monogram on the Womandrake (& get your OWN DVD of the feature length documentary…) then we’ll meet our goal!!  ****  In new news, I’m contacting the KC Cancer Action group to turn the Sinister Circus Opening event into a BENEFIT!!! Can’t you just SEE it!!  We are going to do such great work — and launch the Collection in STYLE!!!  Visit Kickstarter and Pitch in

And, SO, without further adieu: I hold my breath and give you:

The Sinister Stitch Chronicles:   Episode One

‘Dreaming the Sinisters’

Take Me to the Video!!

Click, enjoy, and then fling me far and wide to anyone who loves art, craft, and pushing past all reason to grasp a dream.  We really really DID this!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU all who have backed me thus far…  As this whole thing progresses forward and the Cosmic Tumblers click into place for me, I can’t help but feel a Universal High Five from all those stitchers gone before… and all those on whose needles I’ve stood to make this happen. I am at once exhilarated and humbled.

Tonight, I stitch on Monkshood like MAD as he & Wolfsbane are the Episode Two darlings…  (and for my new “nephew”, Monkshood served as his official intro to art at 2 whole weeks old!) Now THAT’S art!
