I’ve long been fascinated with the concept of animated needlepoint, and in fact made a video a while back that explored some ideas on making a stitch guide “come alive” by turning it into a sort of MTV video.
Above is a short animation from the multi-talented Nina Paley that illustrates how animation can apply to embroidery.
If this sort of stuff interests you — in particular, exploring complex stitchwork designs that are meant to be executed by actual robots! — I recommend you check out her PaleGray Labs site.
