Hand Embroidery by Renie Breskin Adams

“People sometimes ask, ‘Why do you stitch?’ or ‘Why don’t you just paint?’ .... For the contemplative parts of making art, the painting process is too fast for me. The slower tempo of embroidery, however, is just right. It conforms to the tempo of my deliberations .... And I’m good at it. I can always find convincing fiber structure to suit my image.”

—Renie B. Adams, “Inside Out” in Inside Out, exhibition catalog, Mobilia Gallery, Cambridge, MA, 1996, pp 8-9.
