Tapestry weaving, soumak
When my grandparents and great-grandparents made the journey to the New World, their goal was to make a better home for their children. This tapestry is about the building of that home, and the Xs symbolise ‘X marks the spot’, ie ‘Here is where I stay. This is my place of safety, my place of rest’.
