Fitting the Pattern

"As part of a long-term tradition of exploring the imbrications between text and textile, Fitting the Pattern literalizes the idea that an act of writing is also an act of weaving. Here stitches are links, cloth fragments also textual fragments, and the reader is the tailor who must bring it all together to complete the pattern and make the narrative cohere. Fitting the Pattern articulates familial and specifically maternal relations as and through domestic labor, implicitly tracing a line from dressmaking as women's work to a gendered writing practice." -- from Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 2
