The City-Wide Open Studios Older but Younger special commission Memory Edit: I Will Never Forget is looking for people to join the sewing bee during CWOS Alternative Space Weekend November 2-3.
From artist Megan Craig:
“Welcome to the sewer’s, knitter’s, and quilter’s sign-up for Memory Edit (I will never forget…), a collaborative project that explores the phenomenon of memory through touch, sound, and movement. Conceived by multi-media artist Megan Craig and commissioned by Artspace for the 2019 New Haven City-Wide Open Studios, the work consists of four fabric banners arranged with graphics and texts in hand-cut felt. You can sign up as your sewing group or as an individual here. There are 1 hour time slots for each of 4 banners (Alec/Blue, Geri/Green, Susan/Purple, and George/Red). Please sign up for any one of them and plan to wear something in the color you signed up for when you arrive to sew. Together we will hand stitch graphics and text onto the banners over two days during New Haven Citywide Open Studios. Sewing materials will be provided. All ages and abilities welcome!
