sew, sew, sew your poem…
August 19, 2012
If recent posts (here, here) are any indication, there is a growing affinity between the written word and the stitched word. Perhaps it has to do with the slow, methodical process, or perhaps with the desire to hold words close to the body.
At any rate, here’s another addition to the stunningly sewn: the quilts of Kerry Larkin. Larkin is a Colorado quilter, who, with her team of artisans, in a script she calls comma cursive, stitches “original poems and stories about life and adventure” through layers of cotton fabric to create dream-inspiring poem quilts. Here’s more about Kerry Larkin and her business, Comma Workshop (and also on Facebook).
Thanks again to the ever-alert Harriet.
