Sian’s definition of stitch is a broad one that encompasses wrapping, threading, binding and looping as well as conventional stitch. She enjoys using thread (and anything else that could be a thread) as a three-dimensional journey, rather than as something that only appears on a surface. Sian loves the idea of thinking of the whole route taken by a stitch as it winds its way in and out of a surface, worming its way in a three-dimensional dance. So this might explain why she likes to work ‘in the air’, as it were, suspending her stitch by using threads such as wires, canes, willow and machine stitching in voids.
