Katherine Shaughnessy designs the Wool & Hoop Crewel Embroidery Kits. Her mother taught her crewel embroidery at age six in Ohio. She continued sewing, from kits to clothing, and then onto interior design and even wedding dresses. It was in art school that she began using a needle and thread to construct large sculptures and to piece together her collage paintings. She earned a graduate degree in Fiber Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. A few years ago, Katherine became nostalgic for the colorful crewelwork that she remembered as a child, and after a long search for cool kits, she launched Wool & Hoop. Her first book, The New Crewel, was published by Lark Books in 2005. Scroll down to see a few of Katherine's recent crewel "paintings." More of Katherine's art can be found at doegirl.com. You can contact Katherine at her studio at 432.386.0386; by email at info@woolandhoop.com; or by mail at Wool & Hoop, PO Box 281, Marfa, Texas 79843 USA.
