I have read that a Spiders web motif on a
crazy patchwork piece is a must, a tradition not to be broken.However, most people shudder at the thought
of a spider, so why would we stitch a spider and its web on a piece of our
embroidery. Well it all comes from folklore
and the thought that spiders bring good luck. Have you heard of the fable that you should
never kill a spider that you find in your house? It is thought to bring wealth to the home and
family! In regards to a spider and its web on a crazy patch piece, it is true spiders are meant to bring good luck to weavers and spinners.
Silk Indulgence - Crazy Patch - Spiders Web
read that in ancient Greek and Roman myths Arachne was a great mortal weaver. Whilst
her work was beautiful her themes were often insulting to the gods. She boasted about her skill and bragged that
her skill was far superior to Athena’s.Athena being the goddess of spinners and embroiderers and was not
impressed with Arachne’s disrespectful attitude and so turned Arachne into a
spider to spin and weave her days away!
Whilst spiders are a creepy little creature, their webs are a piece of art.
