Summary
"Be inspired by the work and stories of innovative women of color who are making exceptional contributions to the world of craft. The diverse range of textile artists featured include knitters, quilters, sewers, weavers, and more who are making inspiring and exciting work, yet who are often overlooked by mainstream media. Weaving together interviews, first-person essays, and profiles, this book explores the work and contributions of women of color across the fiber arts community, representing a wide spectrum of age, region, cultural identity, and economic class. These conversations explore the provenance of techniques and materials, belonging, identity, pride of place, cultural misappropriation, privilege, the value (or undervaluing) of craft, community support structures, recognition or exclusion, intergenerational dialogue, and much more"--
