It's tradition in our family to take a moment at our Thanksgiving table to share what each guest is thankful for. As I awaited my turn, I felt the warmth of gratitude in my soul for the people I cherish most; my husband and sons sitting near, parents close by, and many more. I wouldn't be the only one to mention those deep relationships. What else could I mention? Would my family laugh if I said... fabric? Later that day I had some time to relax with some handwork and I pondered as to why fabric would jump to a prominent place on my gratitude list. It indeed brings joy to my life as a collector and maker. We speak of quilting as therapy and I can attest to the truth in that. The color, pattern and texture of fabric is key to my creative process. The compassion and love felt in giving a finished quilt lends comfort. Delving further, I considered the deep history of textile, it's strong role in culture throughout the ages, the need it fulfills in physical protection, comfort and expression. Overthink much? It's in my nature. But in this quiet moment of reflection I found myself justified in feeling thankful for fabric. As we enter the season of gratitude and giving, may we each take the time to reflect on what truly brings joy to our hearts and to those we care deeply for. How can we as makers radiate the kindness within creating? We look forward to being a part of meaningful moments as you create gifts for celebrating the season. Much love and gratitude to you this Thanksgiving!
