The Sinister Stitch Chronicles follow the conjuring of 13 poisons in mixed media embroidery.

About this project

Sinister Stitch is a mixed media embroidery project composed of two parts: the Exhibit (which will debut in October 2011) and the Chronicles (airing July through November 2011, with the feature film compiled at year's end).

Your part is as easy as 1 -- 2 -- 3!!
  • 1-- Review the Sizzlin Sinister Stitch video above.
  • 2-- Choose a pledge that fits & Join me!
  • 3-- SHARE this adventure with anyone YOU want to bring into needle arts! This is OUR party and EVERYONE's invited - Facebook Like, Tweet, Capture the Video & Fling it! Calling ALL artists, crafters, dabblers & fans!

I'll post regular updates here - just visit the updates tab ( ALL backers receive automatic email love)!!

First: Sinister Stitch: the Exhibit  ... a mixed media embroidered collection consisting of 13 ancient poisonous botanicals anchored by a central personification of the Mandrake Root’s fabled consort: the Womandrake.   (Additionally, the Sinister Stitch poisons are  Monkshood, Wolfsbane, Foxglove, Poets Narcissus, Black Hellebore, Snakeroot, Moonseed, Angel’s Trumpet, Rosary Pea, Hemlock, and Oleander.)

The Man- and WoMandrake will make their debut October 6-8 2011 in the Missouri Fiber Artists Exhibit: Speaking of Fibers. They'll also anchor the 2 day workshop “A Fiber Artist’s Grimoire – Creating a Mixed Media Embroidered Sketchbook ” hosted at the St Louis Artist’s Guild October 6-8 2011. The entire exhibit will make its debut in Kansas City, MO, on Halloween weekend 2011 thus leveraging its momentum to rally the creative community around the unlikely art of embroidery and wrapping the project.

By combining mixed media techniques and dimensional embroidery on both paper and fabric, the collection challenges our assumptions of what embroidery must be. Additionally, the Womandrake at 3 1/2 ft tall demonstrates the potential for hand embroidery to be both dynamic and imposing.

Second: The Sinister Stitch Chronicles include the web-casts beginning July 2011 that detail creating the exhibit and the documentary film project (scheduled for release in December 2011).

  • As a whole, the Chronicles present an intimate look at the conception, development, and completion of the Sinister Stitch Exhibit, following the journeys of conceiving each piece, then manifesting and delivering the work. Importantly, the story examines the life stresses of manifesting creativity amidst some of life’s cruelest challenges (including candid discussions of how the Sinisters as a focal object were crucial in my 2010 battle against kidney cancer).
  • The Chronicles provide a look at the journey to reclaim the imagery often associated with the stigmatized women of both past and present – the witch archetype – by re-imagining the “sinister” theme in a traditional and often ignored “woman’s” art form.  By doing this in 21st century terms, this series opens a door for discussing the positive and negative associations of women and the feminine as healers, wise ones, creators, and even destroyers in both the historical and cultural context.
  • Ultimately, this Exhibit and Documentary celebrate the triumph of artistic intention over obstacles.  The central message: creativity is a key component to our humanity.By demonstrating embroidery’s appeal as a vehicle for personal expression through journal and diary stitching, as well as a form of universal connection through a simple communal act, we discover that whether we are visual or performance artists, or we work in the realms of business, science, or industry, we can all take valuable lessons from the creative process as a tool for exploring ourselves and our world.    And even cooler is that following the stirrings of a trend in contemporary embroidery that is gaining popularity across genders, ages, and cultures around the globe, this ancient art is breaking down every conceivable difference that separates the citizens of the world.

The Amazing Company You're in:   Confirmed backers to date include
  • complete thread sponsorship from DMC Threads-USA 
  • Missouri Fiber Artists (MoFA) will debut The Womandrake and The Mandrake at the exhibit Speaking of Fibers in conjunction with IT9 (Innovations in Textiles 9)  Oct 6-8, 2011. Visit MoFA website.
  • St Louis Artist's Guild is hosting a Mandrake inspired workshop: A Fiber Artist's Grimoire: creating a mixed media stitched book with Victoria Payne, Oct 7-8 2011.
  •  workspace and a public filming venue at Florilegium Needlearts-Parkville, MO. Visit Florilegium  July 29 2011 marks the official working venue kickoff with a COOL meet-n-greet for my students, friends, artists, and fans to join me in the continuing process of working the Womandrake.  This component of the project is notable in that many of the poisons will be worked in the needle arts shop and during art events as a type of “theater in the round” to allow the public to observe the creative process.  Public events will also provide opportunities to interview fiber and needle artists to explore the needle arts as they are practiced by other artists, crafters, and hobbyists.  ****FLOOD WARNING! As of July 1, 2011, downtown Parkville is, um, almost under water... *gulp* If the July 29 event requires a canoe to attend, I'll announce an alternative venue until we dry out the shop! ****
  • Most recently, I hooked up with the Kansas City Crafter’s Society - who are the kind of cool arty chicks that make me want to be my very best self! Together, we are working to book public gigs to bring the Sinisters out while in progress to let people see how the magic happens! Visit KCCS  Our first event & membership drive on June 23rd 2011 at the Scarlet Garnett Gallery, KCMO was a huge success -- and showed the public's support art, craft, & for the Sinisters!  The public events, along with thoughts and reactions of the viewers will be included in the footage thus making the project dynamic and participatory in a way that's rarely seen in embroidery.

If you’re curious about my past work, I invite you to see the anchor piece for my solo show “Into the Woods: Mixed Media Embroideries by Victoria Crowder Payne” which opened in July 2009 at the Campanella Gallery in Parkville, MO. At 110,000+ stitches and 14 months to create, the Roots at Dusk is the largest mixed media embroidery I’ve created so far (though the Womandrake will be as large).               Visit the Roots at Dusk Diary

In terms of a network of support, I must first thank my partner in life, art, and creativity for helping me see, and be, my best self.  When my vision fails, his does not. Also, I must thank the amazing members of my cyber-families who have given me 5 years of creative support, endless encouragement, and an unlimited supply of inspiration including:

  • my Facebook family of artists & friends (esp the EFU-know-who-you-are... I'll be scheduling interviews soon...)
  • Hand Embroidery Network Visit HEN who gave me my first online teaching gig and who have now invited me on board as a Steering Committee member for the ning community and a contributing writer for Needle Magazine,
  • FiberArtsMixedMediaVisit FAMM) who now host my online classes and have a strong supportive community of amazing artists,
  • the amazing members of my online flickr gallery who inspire me every day in The Mixed Media Embroidery Gallery Visit MMEG,
  • the amazing folks at Mr Xstitch Visit X
  • Feeling Stitchy Visit Stitchy who are always inspiring and encouraging
  • I must also thank David MacDonald who (unknowingly) provided my phat beats for this project, and who (with his too brief time on this planet) set me in motion to achieve dreams I didn't even know I had. Peace- Love- Compassion- my hero, my friend.

Now, all I need is YOU!   If you’re ready for a little botanical adventure, please join me in creating the Sinister Stitch exhibit and documentary – together, we can show the world the power of art, and unleash the magic of embroidery!! 

In terms of rewards, I have two things to offer: pieces of the project and education. For an inside look  Visit Sinister Stitch for a look around my studio where you can visit the rewards in their natural habitat!   Thank you so much for your attention and your support! I am both honored and grateful ;o}

I intend to keep the poisons together as a collection, but for this one time, I'll copy Hemlock ONCE for some lucky backer. International backers, please consider shipping costs;o}
    (You also receive a BIG thank you, email updates on this project AND notice of each upcoming webcast of the Chronicles episodes -- AND, each backer (and their friends, lovers, neighbors, and rowdy kids) will be invited to the Sinister Circus and Exhibit Opening in Kansas City MO over Halloween 2011. Together, we will celebrate the poisons, film the final documentary footage, and wrap the project.)
