When I first heard about this project, my thoughts went immediately to Vancouver’s downtown east side. The horror and tragedy that stemmed from there, and all that still happens there. Finding yourself outside the Balmoral is often the end of the road for some. I found ribbon to stitch around the beadwork. That looks like just that – a road. It circles the danger like a moth circles the flame. I hope that more and more women find their way home, away from such beacons.
