The old fiddle has been around for many years and has played at many a celebration and lamentation. It bears the scars of good times and bad. And, for all of this, when touched by the master’s hand, it speaks with a rich and beautiful tone that comes only with time.
A fused fabric base of commercial and hand-dyed fabrics serves as a sort of under painting for the layers of thread that define and shape the hand and fiddle. Sweet Song from an Old Fiddle is the culmination of hours of intense work, with great love and attention. The gentle and deliberate passing back and forth under the needle results in a beautiful blending of threads that pleases the eye, not unlike the blending of notes that form the sweet song from an old fiddle.
