Danish artist  Anne-Marie Nygaard Eilertsen is now based in Southern Spain where she weaves her huge tapestries.

Only about 40 cms of the image is shown and the full image is only revealed once the weaving is completed and it is cut down from the loom.

Find out more about Anne-Marie’s fascinating work on her profile page on this website.

Books about Textile Art are often hard to find which makes ’Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community,’ an exciting addition to the genre. It features 30 artists of the LGBTQ community including the brilliant Chiachio and Giannone who we featured on Textile Curator a while ago.The range of artists is truly international and like our website it shows the diversity of fibre art today. From the opulent exquisite embroidery by Larry Krone to the minimalist textural shapes by Chris Bogia. As designer Todd Oldham explains “this book celebrates not just fiber art, but queer creativity, which feels all the more necessary and vital in today’s political climate.” It also includes interviews from a range of people in the arts world including Jonathan Adler and Tim Gunn. Curated by John Chaich with Todd Oldham it is published by AMMO Books and is available now on Amazon.
