Meet : Charley Harper

  I was very excited to see Purl announce its new collection of Charley Harper needlepoint canvases this week. I absolutely love the bright colors and minimal forms of his creatures and love how they look reproduced in yarn. They offer a lot of great information about the artist and his work in their post. …
