The Itch to Stitch Embroidery Series of videos were created for the Henry Art Gallery by Solstream Media in collaboration with Phil Cabeen and artist Lou Cabeen.Each of the five videos in the series focus on one of the following categories of embroidery stitches: looped, flat, knotted, couched, and crossed. In addition, each video highlights objects from Henry Art Gallery’s Costume and Textile Collection. Watch the rest of the videos in the series on Solstream’s Vimeo page.
