Over the past years, we’ve seen contemporary embroidery explode in popularity. One of the leaders in the renaissance of this ancient craft is Sarah K. Benning, who, since 2013, has captivated people across the world with her bold plant embroideries and aspirational interior scenes. Trained as a fine artist but self-taught in embroidery, she has grown her business by selling her highly coveted hoop art, turning her designs into DIY patterns and kits, and teaching her techniques in workshops across the world.

I am honored to tell Sarah’s story in a new book titled Embroidered Life: The Art of Sarah K. Benning published by Chronicle Books. Proving that this is not your grandma’s embroidery, I share a peek into her artistic practice and offer insight into some of her most detailed and meticulously crafted pieces. Throughout the book, I also reveal some of Sarah's favorite embroidery tips and tricks, as well as her successful business model. Whether you’re looking to pick up a needle for the first time or you’re a maker that’s trying to expand your creative entrepreneurship, this book is sure to inspire you.

To celebrate the launch of Embroidered Life, Chronicle Books and My Modern Met Store are teaming up for a special giveaway.
