I agree - Selvedge is wonderful. I put it on my Christmas "wish list" but then said, "No, wait!" I want to check out another issue or two before committing to such an expensive subscription.

I'm loving your blog, too! Thanks!

Dear Paula, I love your site -- thank you for writing and alerting me to it. Do you know Andy Goldsworthy's work? You would appreciate his way of working with nature. Your site also reminded me that Susan Sorrell is teaching an online class next spring via Joggles.com on inspiration from nature -- it looks wonderful.

Slow cloth has caused quite a stir, hasn't it. I've been writing about the validity of the term craft and the difference between art and craft on my blog http://paulahewitt.wordpress.com/

10 Qualities of Slow Cloth, by Elaine Lipson

  • I defined Slow Cloth several years ago on this blog. Read the original post at http://lainie.typepad.com/redthread/2008/01/this-must-be-th-1.html. (Copyright Elaine Lipson 2007-2011; all rights reserved).
  • Joy
    Slow Cloth has the possibility of joy in the process. In other words, the journey matters as much as the destination.
  • Contemplation
    Slow Cloth offers the quality of meditation or contemplation in the process.
  • Skill
    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.
  • Diversity
    Slow Cloth acknowledges the rich diversity and multicultural history of textile art.
  • Teaching
    Slow Cloth honors its teachers and lineage even in its most contemporary expressions.
  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
    Slow Cloth is expressive of individuals and/or cultures. The human creative force is reflected and evident in the work.
