Stitch Fetish 6
For International artists

Stitch - verb 1a : to fasten, join, or close with or as if with stitches <stitched a seam> b : to make, mend, or decorate with or as if with stitches

Fe·tish noun 1 a : an object believed to have magical power to protect or aid its owner; broadly : a material object regarded with superstitious or extravagant trust or reverence b : an object of irrational reverence or obsessive devotion : prepossession : an object or bodily part whose real or fantasied presence is psychologically necessary for sexual gratification and that is an object of fixation to the extent that it may interfere with complete sexual expression 2: a rite or cult of fetish worshipers 3: fixation

Stitch Fetish, explores art of the stitch (a rite unto itself), revealing the fetishized secrets lurking in the minds of the artists.  Stitched works of erotica and titillation, dark fantasy and longing, of secrets never told, but long desired and works exploring sexuality, gender, and the intersection where the two find a happy (and often kinky) home is Stitch Fetish.

Artists are encouraged to submit works dealing with erotica, fetish, sex, and sexuality. Feel free to interpret this theme widely. All types of stitched work are welcome for submission: knitting, crochet, embroidery, needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, appliqué… If it’s stitched, please submit.  Please note we are looking for contemporary interpretations of theme and medium.
