Fabric Book

Smith Women
Photo transfers; vintage fabric, lace, beads; embellishments; machine & hand-stitching. C. 2007.

Using sewing skills learned in childhood and bookmaking skills learned as an adult, I devised a home for family photos and memorabilia: a fabric book. Smith Women was created in honor of five generations of women in my family---contains contemporary techniques of transferring photos to fabric, old techniques of quilting and hand-embroidery, and lots of memories.
