About the Author

Meghan Nuttall Sayres writes and weaves in Eastern Washington where she lives. Laurence Boland, Dublin, is a member of the Press Photographer's Association Ireland, the N.V.J., and contributes to Ireland's Sunday Tribune newspaper


In this beautifully wrought chronicle , Meghan Nuttall Sayres has drawn from the past to celebrate the present and future of Taipeis Gael, a tapestry weaving collective of international reputation in Donegal, Ireland. This group of dedicated artists has created a body of work whose compelling imagery, both pictorial and abstract, evokes a powerful sense of their ancient land --a land of rock and of sea, of wool and of natural dyes, of textiles past and of textiles yet to be created. Sayres has woven tapestries, photographs and the very words of the people themselves into a visual and narrative feast from which I could hardly bear to emerge. Sarah Swett, tapestry weaver and author of Kids Weaving.
