Interweaving words and fabric

July 19, 2009

A one-page article about the similarities between my career (technical communication) and my main hobby (quilting and other fabric arts) has just been published in the July/August 2009 issue of Intercom, the magazine for the Society for Technical Communication. It is in the ‘Off Hours’ section, which typically features a technical writer and their out of hours pursuits.

You can read a PDF of the article here: “Words… fabric… It’s all about patterns” or click the image below.

  1. It is art and it’s beautiful. I love seeing the ways you combine your talents. This is a great article. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Hallo Rhonda
    A lovely article, and a lovely illustration. I bet you could come up with some ideas on comparing agile quilting with agile tech writing too :)
