Sue, welcome and thank you for visiting!

Harmony, hello my friend! I'll be posting about your beautiful fabric soon. I'm not sure how to set up subscriptions but I will figure it out. Thanks for the book title -- I think a "Slow Cloth Bibliography" page may be in order. Thank you so much for your inspiration and support. Lainie

looking forward to following this new blog of yours.

Yahoo! I am so happy to see you have started this blog! I am also very interested in hearing more about your big project. The book whose name escaped me in Monterey is "Cloth and the Human Experience". It is on my short (only 2 books) Christmas list. PLEASE when you update your blog add a place where we can subscribe. THANK YOU!

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.
