& The Sewhatevers
The Lawrence Arts Center invited Janet Perkins, a member of The Sewhatevers, to exhibit a lengthy piece for their show String Theory last month.
String Theory show
Janet asked our sewing group to donate those things, those thread savers, that we all use to begin and end a seam or test our stitch.
We saved for months and handed them over to Carol Gilham Jones and Janet. We needed a lot as it had to go from floor to ceiling in the gallery.
Pretty soon our threadsavers were two-sided and quite flashy.
Janet strung them all up and it turned out nicely.
Large---yet easy to store.
