Threads of Life - Claire Hunter
A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle
From the political propaganda of the Bayeux Tapestry and Hmong story clothes to the AIDS quilt and pink pussyhats, people have long used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate or circumstances. Threads of Life is a chronicle of identity, protest, memory, power, and politic told through the stories of needlework. An evocative and moving book about the need we have to tell our story, Threads of Life is a celebration of the age-old, universal, and underexplored beauty and power of sewing.
