Stitch-at-Home Challenge: Borders is a needlework exhibition exploring the idea of borders, both metaphorical and literal, fixed and fluid. Internal boundaries delineate our moods and protect us from threat; external borders serve to define lands, politics, cultures and linguistic variations. They can take the form of whitework edging on a handkerchief, change in thread color from one square of cross-stitch to the next, integrate meeting points, the corners of an embroidered vertical and horizontal border, or the blending of languages, customs, and cuisines in border towns. Selected works will travel to the San Jose Museum of Quilt & Textiles from July 31 – October 13, 2019.
