Put your questions for Christi here!
beautiful work. love your practice of self forgiveness
Is your studio open to visitors?
What is your favorite thread to work your stitching?
This is so, so fascinating, thank you so much for sharing, I’m super interested in how you use textiles for storytelling but also have written the book to elaborate on these stories - could you share your thoughts on sharing stories through both textiles themselves and books/documenting/recording - what is your experience of them working together? Do you think that books have a role in making the stories of the textiles more accessible?
Christi, what are your sun, moon, and rising signs?!
What fabric do you use for your base
Besides the cutch dye, do you know of other natural dyes that become more vivid in the sun or hold up well in the sun?
Best ways to transfer designs to fabric?
I absolutely connect to your work. Thank you for sharing your knowledge about the Slavic towels. Is there a particular space I can go to research an embroidery piece from Leningrad (St. Petersburg) that I have inherited? Thank you for your blend of knowledge, your creativity and representation: it’s refreshing to see someone who looks like me!!! Wahoo!!!

Tannins tend to darken in the sun
Quebracho Moreno darkens, walnut can darken.
tannins darken from the sunlight. Same with many wood products.
Have you looked at the embroideries of Shri Lanka - Ethel Mairet is famous for her work in the early 20th C finding and collecting & continuing the traditions - this has to be an important part of finding these types of embroidery, no? I love the various examples you have shown in your talk are you looking at them in this way too?
Also aquarellable graphite pencils might work as a tracing tool that washes out later
Inspiring and wonderful. Thank you Christi, Kathy and Amy
