A contemplative moment at 'event of a thread' (photo by Abigail Doan)

How apropos for the times that we are living in and the efforts of so many who are trying to re-connect us with the warp and weft of identifying, sharing, and reviving thread traditions.

Here are just a few selections of what I consider to be exquisite events of a thread:
