Featuring:

Levine's hope for this show is that the viewer will not only walk away with a new appreciation of handmade crafts made with methods such as sewing, needlework, hand and machine embroidery, but will also feel inspired to go home and create crafts themselves. 

When Devotion to Thread guest curator, Faythe Levine received her February/March edition of American Craft Magazine there was a statement in reference to fiber artist Lenore Tawney talking about her "Devotion To Thread." It struck Levine as the perfect title for her upcoming exhibition at Woodland Pattern that will focus on artists working with components of "handcraft." Faythe has invited 15 artists from Milwaukee to New York, Alabama to California, to work in a variety of mediums and methods, with the common "thread" of Devotion to Thread in their work. 

Limited Edition Catalog Available:
A complimentary limited edition, hand assembled (paper, wooden spool, hand stamped) catalog (edition of 300 pieces) will be available (while they last) to the viewer at the gallery. The catalog will be designed and assembled by curator Faythe Levine as a way to commemorate this show and Woodland Pattern's commitment to bringing new work to Milwaukee.
