As part of its introduction of a new machine, the Singer Company assembled an exhibition of sewing machine art — wall hangings, quilts, pillows and pictures, done in straight stitch, zigzag stitch, applique, trapunto and imaginative stitch combinations. As Singer puts it, the artists use "the sewing machine needle as a brush, thread as paint, and fabric texture as canvas." Topnotch contemporary artists were represented, and the results were dramatic. There was very little of the tight satin-stitch sort of appli­ que. Instead, there were enormous stitched tapestries, with imaginative motifs worked in fabrics and stitches. ... e . . Many of the hangings proved M •*J» ,k » 5a, ° that design freedom can be ac-> erMtt M°*"«r Child. complished as beautifully in fabric as in paint.
