“Crazy Stitch In”
Blue Door Arts 1608 Capitol Ave
Cheyenne Artwalk September 10th 5-8pm.
“Crazy” is a nineteen inch wide by seventy foot long instillation taking its design inspiration from the wildly popular, intricately decorated, Crazy Quilts, of 1800’s America. The piece is composed of layers of thrift store clothes from the top 36 exporters to the United States .
Designed to spark conversations about “Fast Fashion” and its cost to textile workers and the environment, “Crazy”is a collaborative project involving participants in the “Slow Craft” of embroidery and the social aspects of a traditional quilting bee. To date I have done embroidery collaborations with children and adults in private and public settings from Cheyenne to Istanbul.
