Threads of Life

A globe-spanning history of sewing, embroidery, and the people who have used a needle and thread to make their voices heard 

From the political propaganda of the Bayeux Tapestry, World War I soldiers coping with PTSD, and the maps sewn by schoolgirls in the New World, to the AIDS quilt, Hmong story clothes, and pink pussyhats, women and men have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances. Paperback, 352 pages.
