Rabbitat (stitching details)

The Rabbitat film has been viewed over 4000 times (update: 18,000 in November 2015) since it was posted on Vimeo, 9 months ago! To celebrate, I’ve put together a selection of process photos, most of which have not been published before. Posters of Rabbitat (on left) are available from my Etsy shop. The original fabric relief piece is currently on display until January 17, 2015 ~ ART QUILTS XIX: Permission to Play, Storytelling Art Quilts at Vision Gallery , Chandler Center for the Arts, Chandler, Arizona. Two of my most popular pieces are included in this exhibit ~Rabbitat and Birds of Beebe Woods.

  1. Salley – how do we pass this on? How do we make sure that a “next generation” knows this skill and craftsmanship? Do you teach? Maybe you could do a series of video courses . . just a small sample of stitches, how to, and the creative process. This is a treasure too great to lose!

    • Carol,
      I appreciate your concern for passing on handowrk skills to the next generation. Waldorf Schools do a wonderful job of this. And it seems that there’s a renewed interest in knitting and embroidery among the young. As for your suggestion of teaching via videos or otherwise– sharing on this blog is as much as I can do. As it is, I don’t spend as much time as I’d like on my artwork. Got to get back to that needle and thread…

  2. I am in awe! I love to stitch and enjoy applique very much, but when I look at the depth of your work and how each little stitch is perfect it just strikes me as incredible. So many stitches! Just beautiful work.

  3. Thank you, Salley, for the wonderful demonstration of your work. It is just marvelous to be able to study each step! I have learned so much from you!!!

  4. WOW! Your work is amazingly beautiful. Intricate and whimsical. I love the intense level of detail and it is fascinating to see your design and construction process. Truly inspiring work!
