I Heart Embroidery

I really love these honest, wear-your-heart-on-your-sleeve embroideries by Joetta Maue. Created from vintage linens and doileys, the hand-sewn pieces seem to celebrate imperfection.

Line, 2009 Maue's outdoor installation temporarily exhibited on Governor's Island in NYC, was inspired by the memories and associations of her childhood and her grandmother's back yard. The work was comprised of hand embroidered, appliqued & cut re-appropriated linens, as well as clothesline, clothespins, wind, and sunshine.
