  2. 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.

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

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

  5. 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.
