I can't remember when I first found KittyKill's work on Craftster, but I know it was early on in my embroidery obsession. Her stitching is amazing. Like, painstakingly amazing. I've always been a bit of a fangirl for her.
We "met" online briefly while we both worked on the Secret Tea Towel tour for Jenny Hart , but I didn't get to meet her in person until back in May at Maker Faire Bay Area. She was there with Craftster, and I kinda stalked her for a few minutes while she helped hang their banner. I don't think I even called her by her real name (Pam) I think I just yelled out something like, "OHMYGAWDIT'SKITTYKILL!"
My coolness is unmatched, folks.
She was sweet and friendly, and it genuinely felt like we hadn't just met before, but that we were good friends. It was fantastic! She didn't even freak out when I instantly went to fondle her freaking amazing embroidery tattoo (really, my favorite embroidery tattoo - pictures don't do it justice).
Pam's just posted up a nice little interview with moi over on her blog, Faster KittyKill! I always thought that tv interviews would be painfully awkward, but it appears I can even come off as a huge dork in writing, so ... just bear with me.
Thank you, Pam, for this opportunity, and for being such a rad embroidery inspiration! :)
