Re-Fashioning Identity

Thanks to the University of Puget Sound community I am taking part in this project introduced to us by Diana Weymar who creates inspiring collaborative community stitch projects.

This is due the end of next week, so I must get stitchin' to finish. (Binder paper lines provided, the rest is up to me.)

Craft in America has posted a one minute promo video - catch it here! I don't know what to say. Bill and I feel very overwhelmed by this grace all over again. The episode airs April 21st on PBS!

To the Nightland

To the Nightland is my newest artist book and will be one of the pieces I talk about in my presentation on Saturday, January 14th, at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (3pm) in the auditorium.  

I am appreciating the slowness of sewing book texts, adding bits of lace and beads, finding ways to use all the pieces I've been hoarding for decades, as well as new ways to present a story. I am deeply indebted to Melissa Frykman-Thieme for making the heart around which inspired the design of To the Nightland.
