Weitze’s embroidery uses many of the colors and techniques of traditional domestic craftwork—but the sneaky, subversive humor is far from what one can find on a “Home Sweet Home” pillow. Her small tapestries exhort us to “Don’t do as I do. In fact, don’t even do as I say” or “Always remember that you are unique. Just like everybody else.”

In her self-portrait, banners swirl around her mop of blonde hair, proclaiming that she “Meanders to a different drummer.” And “For a good time, call someone else.” Lest we become judgmental, she lets us know that “I’m not contagious, It’s genetic.” The pretty pastels and thick textures are in contrast to the wry intelligence behind the domestic façade.
