Be Green Contest
A good friend of mine who has been in the business of solid waste for years has been volunteering in a thrift shop. She found that many of the articles of clothing that could not be resold were being thrown away ... straight into landfills. Knowing that I have a quilt studio, she approached me in the hopes that we could "re-use" some of these items. I loved the challenge and we began cutting and hand dyeing the fabrics to create this program...
Purchase a bag of recycled scraps and use them anyway you'd like to create a work of art...quilts, dolls, stuffed animals, clothes, etc. The only "rule" is that you must use 80% of the items in the kit and you are free to add any other fabrics, materials, items if you wish. When you are done, take a photo and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the size, techniques used and a brief story of what the project means to you. You can find the Recycle Kits HERE. Supplies are limited.
