"White Tara" by  Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo

Threads of Awakening. Stitching Buddhas.
Contemporary Buddhist Textile Art born from Tibetan Tradition.

I make brightly colored sacred images from bits of silk satin and brocade. I carry on the tradition entrusted to me by my Tibetan teachers and experiment with new techniques and imagery.

Through the Stitching Buddhas Virtual Apprentice program, I teach a dedicated bunch of stitcher-practitioners around the world.

And I offer weekly inspirational messages through the Threads of Awakening Weekly Wake-up.

  1. Leslie's work is captivating and each beautiful piece tells a story.


“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
