Tom Lundberg Embroidery: Microcosms
The embroideries of Tom Lundberg take a variety of forms; badges, pockets, and footsteps are among the shapes that become emblems of memory, everyday life, and human movement. Within his thread pictures, stitches intersect and overlap to form densely layered microcosms.
Michael Swaine: "Mending for the People" Tenderloin, San Francisco
Once a month Michael Swaine travels to San Francisco’s neediest neighbourhood, the ‘Tenderloin’ where he offers all-day free mending, friendship, and conversation. His mending is not only about the clothes — it is about the community, the people in it, and his own needs to find comfort in a world that is so used to throwing things away.

Jane Dunnewold: Intimate Conversations
For the 2010 Festival of Quilts Jane Dunnewold developed a body of work that was designed around repurposed fabrics, linens, tablecloths, and clothing that represents, to her, the intimate encounters we have in our lives. She utilised several dyeing and printing techniques, always mindful of the relationship between the design element and the theme of her work. Courtesy of Creative Exhibitions, Ltd., London, England.
In the Beginning
Rozanne Hawksley’s extraordinary art covers the great themes of life; love and loss, war and suffering, isolation and the abuse of power, by focusing in on intimate details of what they mean to a specific individual. This installation takes the viewer back to previously unseen, early work from the artist, some of it never completed. Including insightful sketches of herself and others, the artist has revisited these pieces to create a new work that is a commentary on modern life, its stresses and joys.
Chunghie Lee: Pojagi Korean Wrapping Cloths (and Beyond)
Pojagi (‘Po-Jah-ki’) Korean traditional wrapping cloths were originally made by nameless women throughout the Choson dynasty. (1392-1910).
“Pojagi and Beyond”, as Lee refers to her course at the Rhode Island School of Design and in traveling exhibitions from Hawaii to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, is one Korean woman’s passion for creative fibre arts and her desire to teach others so that they may find in Pojagi the freedom and expression she finds from this ancient Korean art form.
