I have been following Penny Nickels for a couple of years now. The artist and her work are featured in the book, PUSH Stitchery. Penny also writes about fiber art for Mr. X Stitch and Feeling Stitchy. You can follow Penny Nickels, and her husband Johnny Murder, founder of the Manbroidery movement at their blog. Since I kept thinking about Penny and she’s so far away in Portland, OR, I asked if I could ring her up for a fiber art chat. Whoa! One of my favorite things about lively conversatin’ is the way one idea or story triggers another and the sublime meandering that takes you to otherworldly connections.
