Inspiring, teaching, and affirming the art of sewing and other southern traditions
Finding the thread that links sewing, art, antiques, vintage, life skills, traditions, history and culture is always on my mind. Obviously, 4 out of 8 are visual. The visual factor is the path that takes us back and forth between abstract and concrete. The old label “home economics” encompassed these topics, but in our heavily specialized world, such a broad label is not all that useful. Just to get a handle on understanding and to bring some order, we are driven to simplicity just to deal. Art helps us remember the nuances and the many possibilities we don’t know or have forgotten.
Visual pathways help us integrate time and wisdom before and after us.
