  • Sketches for capstone winter collection for Woodswoman, an environmentally friendly and locally made clothing line for women that live in Northern Minnesot
  • Keila McCracken updated the Artwork Sashiko
    This is the most ancient known form of human repair of clothing. A precursor to embroidery this stitch was used in Japan to strengthen worn clothing before it was torn as a preventative practice.  There are multiple variations to this stitch and while it was designed for practical reasons it was also created as an esthetically pleasing alternative to a patch.
