This Long Thread - Online Book Launch with Jen Hewett
An Evening with Jen Hewett (online!)
We are over the moon to celebrate the launch of Jen Hewett's new book, This Long Thread. Please join us in a conversation with Jen and some special guests, Dana Williams-Johnson, Jenna Wolf (some of you may know Jenna from 2019 Book Club), and owner and founder of gather here, Virginia. This Long Thread: Women of Color on Craft, Community, and Connection celebrates the diverse work of women of color in the craft community and explores the personal, political, and creative potential of textile arts and crafts. Weaving together interviews, first-person essays, and artist profiles, this book explores the work and contributions of people of color across the fiber arts and crafts community, representing a wide spectrum of race, age, region, cultural identity, education, and economic class.
