No experience required. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to repeat the process and an embroidered image on fabric.

Footnotes and other embedded stories takes its point of departure from the tiny number that leads to an adjacent text at the bottom of a page. Within research, a footnote acts as a hypertext—disclosing a source, highlighting a reference, tracing a line from thought to thought. Outside of academic contexts they arise in conversational tangents, offering readers, viewers, speakers, and thinkers the opportunity to delve deeper, to embed themselves within the root of the text.
