Bonnie MacAllister "Quinceañera"

Statement

The muscle memory of sewing is guided by recollections, stringing the grit and tooth of an abduction, the furrows of seams and seeming, of life stories fought out, patched out before paint would dry, better rather knit, pounded out in coarse intermingling of fibers, torn out and restitched, a forgiving medium where every loop can be redone and undone, tacked and basted anew.
