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. 😉
Treat yourself! You’ve worked so hard on holiday gifts, this one’s for you! An unparalleled & functional objet d’art! I finally corralled enough of these vintage slide carousels and slides (no easy task) to offer as a set, ready to hold your floss for future use!
Each set includes 1 slide carousel in its original box (either black or a silvery grey) and 80 slides plus instructions. All you have to do is wind your floss on the slides, make a little nick in each one to hold the floss end, and you’ve got a clever and delightful visual of available colors
I’m so in love with this idea, I hope you are too!
To be clear: EMBROIDERY FLOSS IS NOT INCLUDED. This is meant to store and organize your extras. Carousels are shipped in their original vintage boxes – styles will vary. And the slides are also vintage–lots of goodies from the 1950s onward!
