Thanks to Anne Cross and the Walek Farms Book Club for virtually hosting me as their guest for their monthly book discussion. The informal visit included questions about my impetus for writing my books and the original idea of using sewing methods from Coats & Clark’s sewing tutorial as metaphors for our real life events. After much delay, we are primed to launch the last book in the trilogy, Sidonia’s Seam Binding, after the first of the year! Shown here is a Sidonia original: a black and white wool houndstooth and black wool felt suit. See it in the new book and at the Harford Mandell JCC starting January 2, 2023.
After working with a wonderful team, including professors, students, and consultants during a worldwide pandemic, we have finally completed our preparatory work for the traveling exhibition, Sidonia’s Thread: Crafting a Life from Holocaust to High Fashion.
