Handwritten Heritage

Handwritten Heritage

31″ x 24″

I have a small collection of tiny envelopes filled with notes from great aunts and other family members with details about vintage tablecloths and other linens. These notes tell the story of our family. A stained and no-longer-used table cloth became a tree representing the branches of our family. Contemporary fabrics, shapes and layers of design suggest that the generations are connected by the stories in these notes and by the tradition of creating with fabric and stitching.
