Embroidery may as well be called slow expressionism. Vancouver-raised stitcher Sophie MacNeill (aka Slow Stitch Sophie) is very much influenced by what’s around her, examining themes of ecology and connection. The thread and fabric she uses is often hand-dyed with natural materials from her surroundings. Such a meaningful, intentional process, along with Sophie’s day job as a landscape architect, makes for some powerfully beautiful environmental advocacy.
