Thanks Cate

About these embroideries from Baker Lake. I saw them in Toronto at the Ontario Craft shop on cumberland street. I've had the images in my camera for months. Time to share them on this blog.

Very interesting. I like the varied stitches that are used for filling - each artist seems to have their favourite.

They are beautiful! They remind me of Kantha Quilts form India with stories in stitches.

I had permission from Blandina Makkik, director of the inuit and native gallery section of ontario craft to take these photos of the collection exhibition March 2015. Here is a link to that past exhibit and some of her comments about the works and the artists.
