“Caren Garfen’s practice is not solely about her virtuosity with stitch. She undertakes meticulous research and often seeks out everyday objects (dolls house furniture, capsules, key rings) to incorporate in her pieces, which when combined act as a powerful conduit for the message.”

Jo Hall - Editor Embroidery magazine, 2018
