Sarah Swett ~ Slow Literature: Story Telling in Tapestry


On Sunday, May 9, 2010 we will welcome nationally recognized tapestry weaver Sarah Swett as she presents a special program beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Bellingham, WA.

Sarah isn't bound by one medium, she explores them all ~ tapestry weaving, knitting, painting, writing. As a creative woman in the 21st century, Ms. Swett allows each artistic form to influence the other when communicating her work's many themes and stories. Her writing influences her painting: her painting influences her tapestry design.

By intertwining many methods of creative expression, Sarah shares her enthusiasm for her work, "The design worth pursuing is not a design at all, but love made manifest in color, texture, image. It is a second captured in cloth, an unfolding story, a small miracle..(My) work infiltrates my dreams, builds my biceps, thrills me to the bone and drives me to tears."


Sarah Swett's May 9th program is open to the public and will be held at the YWCA located at 1026 N. Forest St. Bellingham, WA. Admission: $5.00 suggested donation to the YWCA. Whatcom Guild members are free.
