Featured Work

Trending Threads was on exhibit at the Abington Art Center September 14 thru November 11, 2017. The show featured 300 handcrafted, embroidered character blocks in wool felt.

Trending Threads compares and contrasts the immediacy and impulsiveness of a tweet to the thoughtful interactions with one another. Show attendees will be able to move 4”x 4” character blocks around on a modular, handcrafted board in order to spell out their own giant fiber tweet. They will be encouraged to snap a photo and post it to social media with #trendingthreads. As the first and only resident fiber artist of the Abington Art Center, it took Teresa over a year to hand embroider each letter and character, a strong contrast to the fast-paced world of tweeting.
