Description

This book gathers a collection of multidisciplinary essays written by distinguished scholars, visual artists, and writers. The common thread of these essays addresses the ways in which fiber arts have enriched and empowered the lives of women throughout the world. From Ancient Greece to the Holocaust, through to the work of grassroots organizations, these essays illustrate the universality of fiber arts. In each of these chapters, the need of the women to create meaningful works of art shines through. This creative expression allows the artist to transcend the everyday, and sometimes horrific, experiences of life in order to create something beautiful, something that bears witness to the testimony of memory but aspires to a brighter and better future. The threads, the scraps of cloth, the wool, the lace and the stitches come together as manifestations of beauty, resistance, courage, and possibility that embroider the world with both grace and light.
