Sarah Pedlow, artist and founder of ThreadWritten Textiles, is interested in cultural preservation, ethnic embroidery, and creating a global community of makers connected via cultural heritage skills. From 2012 – 2015 she researched Hungarian Kalotaszeg written embroidery in Transylvania, Romania and made products with women artisans. Through many trips to Hungary and Romania her love of embroidery grew, prompting travel to artist residencies in Iceland, Mexico, and this summer The Netherlands and Ukraine. Sarah teaches embroidery and net-making in the Bay Area and has given lectures for the Embroiderers Guild of America. She holds a BA from Scripps College, Claremont and an MFA from Rutgers University.
