Today I have a guest post “The Biggest Problem with Slow Stitching is the Time Involved. Or Is It?” on Mark Lipinski’s Slow Stitching Movement website.
Slow stitching is about taking our time as we create. The idea of being present as we are working applies to anything we make by hand. I’m realizing more and more that a big issue I have with drawing is the concern that it will take a long time and have a poor result. But the whole point is to take time and be conscious of what is in front of us. The product is just a side effect of our meditation on our surroundings.
I hope you will take a few minutes to visit Mark’s site and learn more about the slow stitching movement. There are articles by various fiber artists explaining their interpretation of slow stitching and also short podcast interviews with many of the same artists.
