|Susan G.: Detail of healing cloth: Portrait of a family relationship|
|Diane M.: Healing cloth for a friend whose grandchild is undergoing treatment for leukemia. Lace doilies are used as clouds with organza and beads moving from dark to light. The word "hope" is couched ending with a blue bird of happiness.|
|Diane M.: Detail.|
|Donna P.: Meditation cloth. Donna wanted to make a piece that reminded her of the ocean...one she could meditate on! Lots of lovely textures, use of natural objects, and soft colors.|
|Melanie H.: Melanie created a piece jumping off from photos of human DNA and microscopic images. She created all the fabrics used in this piece. Lots of subtle stitching and beading to enhance and add texture.|
I was very pleased with the results. Each piece tells a story and fulfills the intention of the artist.
|Marine W.: Meditation cloth. Marine used her own hand painted/printed fabrics in these lovely soft colors. She further softened the intersections with organza and is now adding seeding stitch.|
|Marine W.: Detail showing seeding stitches.|
|Jutta M.: Jutta stitched together this wonderful nine patch using a selection of nature-inspired fabrics. She is planning to add some small stitched stars to complete this meditation cloth.|
|Megan P.: Here is the morning meditation side with brighter colors and more contrast. This side will feature stitched ants.|
|Megan P.: Here are some of the stitched ants!|
|Rebecca K.: This is also a transition/healing piece. The weaving represents the man-made...complications. The open areas..simplification. Other parts of this colorful and textural piece have special and significant meaning to Rebecca.|
|Rebecca K.: Detail of woven area.|
