Meet Subversive Stitcher Kendra! She works as the fish ticket clerk at a salmon processing plant on Bristol Bay. She arrives in early May and works until about August 1. They process sockeye salmon, mostly for the domestic market and by mid-July she’d helped process just over 5 million pounds; last year they did about 8 million, a record year bay-wide.
Kendra says, “It is a crazy business, but I’m (mostly) glad to be part of this still thriving wild fishery!”
Here are some photos of what it's like stitching out in the wilds of Alaska:
gas—not sure how much—75,000 gallons +?
I have so many questions, but WOW I'm glad she brought along some cross stitch because I'm not entirely sure if we deliver there! I bet foxes are great conversationalists to a POINT, but then what? Retreat and stitch! Cross stitch really warms the place up, makes the container a little more cozy. ;) Thanks so much for the photos, Kendra! This blows my mind! xoxo
