“With This Long Thread, Jen Hewett’s made a powerful contribution to the current cultural moment. By elegantly weaving together the words and work of women of color fiber artists, Hewett shows us how enriching and utterly essential a diversity of voices is to the modern craft movement.”—Nina and Sonya Montenegro, artists, authors, and menders, The Far Woods
“For those immersed in the word of fiber art, This Long Thread offers a multi-point perspective from female fiber artists of color whose voices we have been so desperately waiting to hear more of through a mix of interviews and personal essays. Jen shares a passion for the art and community with her fellow artists in a range of levels and all with fascinating stories to tell.”—Joy Cho, founder and creative director of Oh Joy!
“This Long Thread brings an intersectional perspective to craft and unearths the reality that for many women of color the meaning of craft is intertwined with our identities and is a vehicle for us to share our untold stories through art. I couldn’t recommend this book more.”—Leah Thomas, founder of Intersectional Environmentalist
“Jen Hewett delicately weaves the voices of women of color into a powerful crescendo of belonging, power, and inspiration.”—Tracee Stanley, author of Radiant Rest and Empowered Life Self-Inquiry Oracle and founder of Empowered Life Circle
“Stitching together vital voices in the modern craft community, this book will inspire readers from all walks of life to think about craft not just as a hobby, but as a vehicle through which to engage in community, tradition, innovation, and most importantly, unbridled self-expression.”—Justina Blakeney, artist, author, and founder of Jungalow
