"The quilts within the pages of With Sacred Threads delight my spirit and nourish my soul...that same Spirit will be mirrored in the hearts and minds of all who read this book."
—Carolyn L. Mazloomi, PhD

"A quilt will no longer be merely a collage of color or a tasteful arrangement of fabric once you have read With Sacred Threads. Much like scripture, a quilt tells a story and echoes of voices far beyond what a mere hasty glance reveals. And a quilter is a meaning-speaker beyond what reason and language alone can fathom."
—Rev. Dr. Howard E. Friend, Jr. 

This book reflects on the endless ways that quilting is a context for the spiritual journey. Each chapter centers on a theme that connects to life in the Spirit and life as a quilter. The metaphors and stories that thread their way through these two overlapping worlds demonstrate emphatically that the sacred exists in the routine events of our lives.
