Since each of us was several, there was quite a crowd. Here we have made use of everything that came within range, what was closest as well as fartherest away. (Deleuze & Guattari, in the introduction to A Thousand Plateaus, 3)

Quilted Out Of Space: Postcards from Lincoln

Quilted Out Of Space: Postcards from Lincoln : first some images--we intentionally arrived four days before the conference started and spent our time walking around the streets of Lincoln getting a feel for the place. Our focus each days (and all the days we were there) was the train station. The long goods trains were continually passing through, travelling slowly and sounding their low mournful horn (day and night). We also soon discovered and frequented the 'Indigo Bridge Cafe'--the best coffee in town! Also a bookshop and staffed by students, it also has a fantastic atmosphere.


  1. I enjoyed your presentation at the Textile Society of America Symposium! (and as a Lincoln local I love Indigo Bridge too).

  2. Hi Kate, it is fantastic to hear from you! We visited Indigo Bridge (and the train station)everyday(sometimes more than once)we were in Lincoln and felt like 'regulars' by the time we left. The staff were always so welcoming and make such great coffee! I discovered the author Willa Cather while we there and so I bought books as well!
