The Textile Blog ---Take a Look!
The Textile Blog
I discovered this blog a few days ago and it is very addictive. I could have spent the entire morning pouring through its older articles. It's like having a wonderful huge edition of Piecework Magazine on your computer. The current article is a review of the work by Gerrie Congdon as illustrated in the above piece.
The blog concentrates on the history of textiles, but does include contemporary work. Among the subjects covered are printed, woven and knitted textiles, as well as carpet, rug, tapestry, quilting, embroidery, lace and basketry design. It also includes a culturally diverse approach to the history of textile design across the globe.
