This year, it is about "soul sewing." I will use the most symbolic garment of love -- the wedding dress and transform wedding dresses into stories of joy, happiness, sorrow, forgiveness and all the emotions that come with being in love.

My new series of handmade textile books involves manipulating textiles to tell stories of love and loss.
Where did these dresses come from? How did they end up in thrift stores? Who buys wedding dresses from thrift stores? What are their stories?
For the next year, I will transform a few of these wedding dresses into books. I will create original designs, poetry, illustrations, and will use various textile manipulation techniques to tell stories.
