Folded Secrets by Susan Cutts, 2011. Needlewomen the world over have devised different ways of storing threads, patterns and needlework tools. The Miao and Dong minority groups living in Southwest China make an ingenious type of paper booklet to store their tools. The booklets are made from handmade paper with as many as nineteen compartments. The women use these booklets to organise their thread, braids and paper patterns. Often family photographs are inside making them especially personal. Bookmaking Art, Book Art, Susan Cutts, Book Binding, Paper Sculpture, Art Book, Chinese Thread, Artists Book, Thread Book
