Speaking in Cloth offers you the opportunity to visually and intellectually enter the worlds of six Northwest quilt artists. It is an invitation to respond to their use of cloth and thread as they tell their stories and record their explorations. Each chapter addresses a question that they are often asked, and that they often ask each other. The artists hope you will draw on your own experiences to extend this conversation.
...Why do you choose the language of fiber and thread to make your art?
...Do you find yourselves working with recurring themes over time?
...Is there a visual voice that identifies your work?
...What is your working process?
...What are the challenges and joys of making your art?
...Does it matter if the quilt communicates a specific meaning to your viewers?
