    My love of embroidery is well documented on this blog (if you are a recent comer and feel like digging through old posts, I suggest this epic post as a good place to start.)  Alas, we are here to talk about something new today - Pens & Needles to be exact.

    Clever and talented London-based design studio CUSTHOM recently curated a super beautiful exhibition of tactile posters that explores “the use of digital embroidery as a unique and expressive form of drawing”. A selected group of twelve designers each submitted an artworks which CUSTHOM manipulated through stitch or mechanical drawing, using a ‘hacked’ digital embroidery machine. The result is a perfect marriage between technology and art, and one of the most beautiful and progressive examples of computer-aided works I’ve seen.
