The knitPro Needlecraft Art Show exhibits stitched craftwork made from microRevolt's freeware knitPro, which translates digital images into needlecraft patterns. The twelve artists featured in this show exhibit a spectrum of fiber artistry and extreme hobbyism with the flare of outsider art aesthetics and the tenacity of DIY craft culture. With an average of 400 unique hits a day, knitPro users are stitching a barrage of images as diverse as flickr -- featuring lo-tech video games, children's book characters, candid snapshots, pop celebrities and symbols of political uprising.
