Wonder Women… realized

I can’t believe its done. All I need to do is find a wall big enough to hang it and photograph it.

Wonder Women is a riot of pony beads, buttons, bottle caps, crystals, mirrors, flowers, embroidery, and bling measuring a 10’x8’.

Over the course of four weekends, Garden Level hosted four Sewing Circles. More than twenty people headed the call. Each influencing the work in their own way.

A nine-year-old girl walked in off the street with her mom and learned to sew her very first button. Even, two men joined the fun and documented their work.

Sewing Circle Part 3 this Sunday

I printed my Woman Woman Selfie onto heavy fabric for a 10’x8′ tapestry.

Im on deadline for a show and need help sewing bottle caps, buttons and beads onto the fabric for the hair. I need help sewing on bling.

I’ll be at Garden Level Gallery from 11:00am-4:00pm Sunday 7/29. Come for 30mins or come for the duration. Bring a friend or just yourself.

Yes, I will have snacks and day drinking beverages on hand… 🙂
