Threads of Life was a Sunday Times bestseller described as ‘an eloquent history of the language of sewing’ and has been likened to The Hare with Amber Eyes meets The History of the World in 100 Objects.

Clare has been a community textile artist and textile curator for over 20 years and has established the community enterprise NeedleWorks in Glasgow. ‘It’s an astonishing feat, this patchwork quilt of history, culture and politics, which takes us from Saxon England to colonised African tribes, Palestinian villages, rural China and the cramped homes of American slaves... a richly textured and moving record of a history that has largely being lost.’ Sunday Times
