A British artist  Sally Hewett does embroidery work that represents the human body. Hewett is interested in the social and political stigmatism surrounding the craft of embroidery and needle work in today’s society.
She says in her artist statement  My embroidery and stitching practice centres on bodies, beauty and ugliness and the conventions that determine which is seen as which…I am interested in how we see things, how we interpret what we see and how the connotations of needlework and embroidery as a medium affect how the content is seen – is it seen as ugly, beautiful or funny?”
