Frau Frau Friday and Training
Friday Oct 14, 6:30-9:30 pm
In preparation for November Sewing Rebellion, using t-shirts as a natural resource, Faux Fraus will learn how to make kitchen Kovers for jars, bowls, and cups. This project was inspired by covers Faux Frau Cythnia made for the Thank You for Coming CSA box in September.
If you have sewing or other textile questions, please forward them to email@example.com
“My wife made attractive dresses from low-priced mill ends; her old ones she made over for the children. My clothes became marvels of reconstruction. Small patches patched large patches, and larger patches covered all; these in turn were spotted with smaller patches until Joseph’s coat of many colors was patched on my shirt. When all strata of a garment wore out, my wife tore them into strips and knitted them into thick warm rugs with a pair of needles I made of a springy wire barrel hoop.”
Charles Vindex, describing life near Plentywood Montana in 1931.
