Quilted Photographs

Small World Coffee is often the venue for inspired young artists. Alison Young begins with photographs, then transforms them with fiber and thread through a printing and stitchery process. Images from  familiar Princeton area parks and gardens are on view at Small World through May 5, with an opening reception April 10,  7 to 9 pm.

Ms. Young, an Oregon native who has lived around the world and settled in Princeton nearly a decade ago, prints her original photographs on dupioni silk, then sandwiches it with cotton batting and muslin. Using a free-motion machine stitching, she quilts the image to define and decorate.

Under the name Parasol Fine Stitchery, Ms. Young creates  pillows, wall art, pouches, blank books, banners, cards and more. The artist also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Princeton Theological Seminary. Her work can be viewed on her website, www.parasol-stitchery.com.
