        Terese Agnew: Drawing with Thread | Craft in America

        Terese Agnew: Drawing With Thread explores the work of fiber artist Terese Agnew in the THREADS episode. Agnew's work has evolved from sculpture to densely embroidered quilts by a process she calls “drawing with thread”. Her themes are environmental and social. Her most notable quilt, Portrait of a Textile Worker, is constructed of thousands of clothing labels stitched together, contributed by hundreds of sympathetic individuals worldwide. The resulting image is about the exploitation and abuse of laborers, the by-products of globalization and the insatiable American appetite for goods.
