Andrea Vander Kojj is a Canadian textile artist. She makes embroideries on vintage sheets and tablecloths. If I remember well from when I saw one of her exhibitions in 2008, she stated that she was working on vintage fabrics because she could still feel the previous owner’s presence and that she was able to add another story, another life, another layer of meaning to the object.
