Current Issue

The Threads Issue  

Each stitch tells a story, whether it is part of an intricate wall hanging that captures a memory of life on the land or an expertly crafted amauti and pair of kamiik. Even the often-unseen strings that stitch families and generations together trace the contours of personal and collective histories.

From the intergenerational stitches that make up the wallhangings of Qamani’tuaq (Baker Lake), NU, to portfolios of five big designers making the Arctic look cool, as well as the minute inukuluit of Nunatsiavut embroidery, the Threads issue delves into the many ties that bind.
