Weaving Words: Tensions in Text and Textile
Weaving Worlds: Mythic and Domestic Craft
To create is to generate meaning, to carry something from one medium into another. In many traditions,  women are the weavers. Whether creating children or textiles, women are a source of metaphor, carrying the quotidian into the sacred and vice versa.
