2020 Tiny Pricks Project Calendars!

It’s here!! 

I’m sure you remember me going on and on about Diana Weymar’s Tiny Pricks Project and encouraging you to submit your own piece. From her site:

Tiny Pricks is a public art project created and curated by Diana Weymar. Contributors from around the world are stitching Donald Trump’s words into textiles, creating the material record of his presidency and of the movement against it.

Tiny Pricks Project holds a creative space in a tumultuous political climate. The collection counterbalances the impermanence of Twitter and other social media, and Trump’s statements as president through the use of textiles that embody warmth, craft, permanence, civility, and a shared history. The daintiness and integrity of each piece stand in stark contrast to his presidency.

It’s really something else, quite therapeutic to stitch his words on vintage handkerchiefs or fabric. Diana has had a few gallery shows and has taken all of the pieces to several places to exhibit. Plus she provides materials for people to join in and stitch on site! She’s also gotten some amazing press–you  may have read about the project in the New Yorker!

 

And the calendar! It’s just gorgeous and I think it will help you get through 2020. There are more photos on the calendar page and on Diana’s site. I’ll also be adding extra images on social media, so stay tuned to Instagram.

 

And get your calendar today before they’re gone! A full year of therapy. πŸ˜‰
