The 11 long short stories in Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads combine history, mystery, action, and/or romance, and range from drug trafficking using Guatemalan hand-woven wallets, to an Antebellum U. S. slave using codes in her quilts as a message system to freedom; from an ex-journalist and her Hopi Indian maid solving a cold case together involving Katchina spirits, to a couple hiding Christian passports in a comforter in Nazi Germany; from a wedding quilt curse dating back to the Salem Witchcraft trials, to a mystery involving a young seamstress in the infamous Triangle Shirt Factory fire; from a 1980s Romeo and Juliet romance between a rising Wall Street financial "star" and an eclectic fiber artist, to a Haight-Asbury love affair between a professor and a beautiful macrame artist gone horribly askew, just to name a few.

Wonderful set of tales
- New Mexico Reader
I enjoyed the diversity of the stories, how each one kept me intrigued and interested to the very end.
I was really moved by the quilt story. What a wonderful, heartbreaking story.
I really enjoyed listening to this book.
