Dorie Millerson

Dorie Millerson is an artist and teacher working in Toronto, Canada. She employs a technique called “needlepoint lace,” which she says gives her the ability to draw with thread.

FYI: Needlepoint lace is a form of embroidery which we don’t see very much. TextileDreamer has a 10part tutorial on how to master the complexities of this form. Part one is here.
