Woman of the Cloth: Fabric Artist Penny Sisto

Filmmaker: 
Caroline Nelli
57 minutes

To say that Penny Sisto makes quilts is to say that Melville wrote about fish. A natural storyteller, she mesmerizes the viewer as she reflects on life and the art she creates as the camera rolls. "No matter how harsh the topic, the fabric cushions that," Sisto says, "you remember as a child being wrapped in a quilt; you are open to listen to it."
