Hoopla: Generative Embroidery

Hoopla is a system that procedurally generates embroidery designs in the style of traditional cross-stitch samplers. It pulls quotes from the internet, generates motifs and images to surround those quotes, and attempts to mimic the layout of a traditional sampler. The project is currently in a prototype phase, with plans to add more functionality and have the system generate designs that can be both created by humans and machine-stitched on an embroidery machine.
