Stitches of Love


From our homeland, we brought the memories of our ancestors in the delicately hand-woven peasant blouses called ‘ie’. Each piece represents a unique work of art that carries a story, a poem, and a longing for home.
We seek to revive the poetry of our ancestor’s folk motifs and bring their stories to life by recreating the original embroideries in a collective project.

Patterns that Unite Us and Build Community

In times of crisis, like the one that we are currently in, we come together to help and lift one another. We comfort, encourage and embrace each other with love and compassion. We might be living apart, but we are united in our sense of community. Folk art is embedded in the daily life of many communities; it is an experience, often practical, and an object of art. Cross-stitching has kept participants of all ages motivated and going, giving them a purpose.
