Willa Cather's The Professor's House, with its dresssmaker's "forms" and analogues between the novel and the Bayeux Tapestry; and what Nancy Miller calls the "tropology of the loom" and Susan Stanford Friedman "Penelope's web" in H.D.? Also the weaving of the ceremonial serapes in D.H. Lawrence's The Plumed Serpent (and his short story "The Thimble")?

Subject: [Msa-discuss] Embroidery in Modernist Works

Dear All,

I'm trying to work through an idea about embroidery and sewing in the works of modernist writers.  I honestly don't know if this is a broad question or not, but does anyone know of works that include references to or scenes of embroidery and sewing?

Thanks very much,
