"When I was growing up, all the women in my house were using needles. I've always had a fascination with the needle, the magic power of the needle. The needle is used to repair the damage. It is never aggressive, it's not a pin."

Louise Bourgeois, Destruction of the Father, Reconstruction of the Father: Writings and Interviews 1923 – 1997, edited and with texts by Marie-Laure Bernadac and Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Violette Editions, London 1998, p.222

As for me, two enduring images I have in my mind come from the Bible and are linked with the needle:

- finding a needle in a haystack
- the gate of the spiritual life is so narrow, it is like a camel having to walk through the hole of a needle.

There are so many beautiful images coming from the world of textiles in mythology and litterature. My favourite one is still Ariadne's thread.
