“Much of the focus behind what I create is to elevate the premise of ‘women’s work’ to visual art.  Handwork such as needlepoint and quilting have historically been viewed as a quaint pass-time or a basic utilitarian need.  The female gender has held a similar place in history, continually struggling to gain equal footing with our male counterparts.  But even when the feminine voice has been muted or ignored, it has always been there, however subversive.  Looking closer at the handicrafts of the past this is often evident.  My aim is to continue this tradition, using fiber as my medium to have my voice heard.” – Abby Langdon
