hi, I'm Ruth. A friend dubbed me Ruth Bright-Needle, which is what I'd like on my grave marker.

I'm into particularly around textiles. I work as a doing digital/cataloging/tech stuff and am trying to improve conditions. I live in the grief and hope of the . and the movement are very important to me. I do some , particularly for horror .

I'm a Mennonite and at least aspirationally a Christian Anarchist.

As I said in my bio, I find hope in rotting logs, in mushrooms, in ecosystems... I'm also interested in
