Hello from Julie

Hi. My name is Julie B Booth (aka Threadborn). I’ve admired the alphabets from ALaW 2012 and thought that I’d play along this year. I’m primarily a fiber artist, though I started my professional life as a graphic designer. I’m probably best known for my non-traditional cloth dolls and more recently for my hand painted and printed fabrics. In fact, after winning a grant from my fiber guild in 2010, I’ve been spending a great deal of time in my kitchen concocting fabric resist recipes. This year, I decided that the kitchen held all sorts of possibilities for fabric surface design and started an online newsletter to share my discoveries. In this recent post, I have a recap of 2012 so you have an idea of what I’m all about.

I’m very excited to be joining such a creative group of artists. I’ve already been thinking about what I’d like to try doing for this year’s alphabets. I expect that this is going to be a lot of fun and look forward to getting to know each of you and your artwork over the course of this year. I can’t wait to see how each of us interprets the Peace alphabet!


  1. Welcome along Julie - so glad to see you've been pondering already where to go and how to make a start...I am looking forward to seeing where the journey takes you. Go well.

  2. Hi Julie, nice to meet you. I'm sure you will have lots of fun here, and I look forward to seeing your ideas, Noela

  3. Bonjour, je suis ravie à l'idée de nouvelles découvertes.

    Hello, I am delighted at the prospect of new discoveries.

  4. Thank you all for welcoming me to this group. I am very excited! I expect alaw to be an interesting challenge as I am not a calligrapher nor a book maker. But...I have admired all the many interpretations of alphabets from 2012 and I wanted to have a project that would stretch me in new directions this year. There are many ideas swirling around in my head and showing up in my notebook!


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it's always great to hear from folk.
