Instagram is an immediate, widely accessible platform that allows artists to connect globally, learn techniques and find inspiration. Similarly, the economical cost and portability of embroidery materials appeal to a diverse set of makers. By its very nature, stitching is a medium that encourages connectivity and transcends boundaries. For these reasons and more, Instagram hosts a rich community of embroiderers — a modern application becoming the perfect home for an ancient craft. Curated by Lillstreet Textiles Department Director, Nora Renick Rinehart, #LillstreetHoopDreams features a selection of artists brought together by a world-wide-web of threads.
