I love working with fabric and fiber, stitching and embroidering layers and textures. What better way to explore the story of Arachne then through the act of stitching and weaving a story? “Arachne” is a poem written by me and superimposed over photos that I took of the spiderwebs that populate my garden in the fall, then printed onto cotton fabric. I then layered and stitched lace and organza hands on top of the webs and added to them with additional embroidery. The outside of the scroll is appliqued and embroidered with the title. All the fabric pieces are leftover from past sewing projects, including a bit of an old grey sweater that was discarded.
