PieceWork Fall 2021
During times of intense cultural change, needleworkers may turn back to reliable traditions, explore new materials and techniques—or both! Join us as we investigate threads of change in the Fall issue of PieceWork. Mary Anne Wise connects us with Guatemalan stitchers through embroidered story cloths depicting intense personal histories of both war and peace. Isabella Rossi shares the story of social reformer Robert Owen and his work to improve the life of Scottish textile workers. Rebecca J. Martin journeys to Egypt’s western desert in search of changing textile traditions. Plus, learn about the Victorian fad known as ticking embroidery.
