Abstract

Weaving – such as Libby Hague's Interweave (2010) – is especially emblematic of the type of interconnectedness and interdependence generated in families and communities. Additionally, because textile-based arts (constructed by knitting, sewing, quilting, and weaving) have historically been aligned with women's work, their metaphors may be extended to highlight the role of women as the architects of families and communities.
