    Naughty BSR foot got updated!

    I have had a love and hate relationship with my Bernina Aurora 440 from the moment I tried quilting with the BSR foot. At first I thought it was me, I was a novice after all but after a couple of years I truly believed that my machine was a lemon. She was just too fussy about certain threads when I used the BSR foot and I eventually gave up quilting all together because I ended up speaking like a…

    ERIN RILEY’S TABOO TAPESTRY

    Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work. 

    Erin’s work will be showing at Philadelphia based Paradigm Gallery + Studio from August 30th - October 12th, 2013. Hope you can make it out, these tapestries are sure to stir up a dialogue.

     

    I really enjoy work that juxtaposes traditionally feminine craftwork (i.e. knitting, sewing, needlepoint, weaving) with a modern representation of women - one that questions the basis of pre-supposed femininity (and/or concepts of grace and meekness) that these trades culturally imply. 

    These pieces are so impressive!
