Last friday I attended the opening of the Open Source Embroidery project at the HTTP Gallery for Networked Media Art, a great little space tucked away in a small industrial estate in Manor House, north London. It's off the beaten track, but it's definitely worth making the effort to search it out.
Open Source Embroidery is a project facilitated by Ele Carpenter that explores the common characteristics of embroidery alongside other textile practices such as quilting and knitting with open source computing, in particular the collective process of making and sharing knowledge and experience.
Check out the open source embroidery link below, which aswell as fantastic information about the project, includes some great links to other interesting embroidery projects.
Here's some links related to the project and the gallery:
