My mother loved fabric. Her basement held hundreds of bolts up to fifty yards each, which means she could have unfurled a textile train over fifteen miles long. Fabric sat in tall stacks on her sturdy sewing-room workbench. The bottom bolts were flush with the bench’s front, but the stacks gradually leaned back as they […]

all the little happy things

Sara Volpi (12) earned a BFA in Creative Writing with a minor in studio art from Morehead State University. If you knew her when she was a kid, this was easy to predict.

Chapter Three: Welcome Home   It was about mid-April of 2013 when Stephanie Fogel mentioned artistic collaboration to me again. This was a couple-few weeks after our trip to the Olympic Peninsula, and shortly before I had to deliver my undergraduate thesis proposal.
