What People Are Saying About Penny

"I like to think of you as a high priced call girl that the unwashed masses can't afford--like Woody Allen's Whore of Mensa. It's not your fault that people offer $10 blowjobs on the street corner. It's not an insult if somebody doesn't buy your art." -Alexandra J Walters

"Once Penny was making her own silk thread, and a midget appeared. Before he could open his ugly mouth, without looking up, she exclaimed, 'Rumpelstiltskin. Now get the fuck out of here.' Fairytale Over."- Beth Featherstone

"Penny can push a needle through a telephone pole without a thimble." -Shane Blaufuss

"When a man asked Penny, 'What’s the meaning of life?' She looked at him for exactly 3 minutes, completely still, until he cried. That man’s name was Steve Jobs."- Beth Featherstone

"A demon from the pits of bitch cunt." -W.C. Hurst

Good Times in Portland

Last Friday was my first set of shows here in Portland. It was an amazing experience, and what really made it special is sharing it with the kick ass stitchers below.

Pam from Faster Kitty Kill, Tara from Bubble Off Plumb and my sweet honey Johnny Murder from MANBROIDERY! Not only do I get to write with these ladies at Feeling Stitchy and MrXStitch, it was amazing to be hanging out with the some of the most notable stitchers on the west coast. POW! Represent!
So here's a run down of the pieces we have up. At Redux-
