"Embroidery has a reputation for meticulous diligence, a good thing in many ways, but that is an optional part of what makes it beautiful. My approach is a little different: I love to liberate the stitches, letting them grow bigger and wilder as an expression of my inner and outer worlds."

Judit Gummlich

"Judit’s artistry is in how she encourages us to continue our exploration beyond stitch-by-stitch instruction, and as we do so, we discover how it can be a canvas for a new palette of stitches, or a page for a new lexicon. We are invited to disrupt the surface and at the same time celebrate it with yet more."
