Reposted from @instarlodge Mending Monday✖️✖️✖️”This is a very special patch on a very special shirt. The patch was sewn by the @twoitinerantquilters (artists @lenkaclaytonstudio and @joannamartine ) during the @openengagement conference two years ago. They have been creating an ongoing patchwork quilt, made with patches collected from passerby’s clothing, at this point more than 300. Additionally they collect the story of the garment and the passerby wears the newly patched clothing out into the world. I chose to participate because for me this project literally draws an interwoven thread between myself, my sister (who’s shirt it was), and the many others who make up this quilt. In my own practice I often work with metaphor related to weaving, mending, cloth and thread and I believe mending is more than repairing garments, I believe it is mending hearts and sharing stories with appreciative labor. It honors the past while honoring a future without waste and new possibilities created from old. It has traditionally been a woman’s work and historically not been seen as an art. Currently there is a mending movement happening in what we collectively call art—and regardless of how we frame it, what seems most wonderful is that we are learning to value it in a new ways.”— @dawnbreezeart ✖️✖️✖️✖️⠀#mendingart #artofmending #sashiko #quiltart #handstitch #handsewn #mending #instarlodge #creativitycourageandcommunity #womenswork #mendingmonday #fabricstory #upcycledclothing #communityart ( #📷 @instarlodge via @latermedia )

Our Itinerant patch cutting/repair system. If we lose the “hole” template the whole project may fall apart. #livingontheedge⠀⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric

@twoitinerantquilters
@twoitinerantquilters grew out of a plan to make a quilt by post between Pittsburgh, USA and Wales, UK (as a way for 2 friends to stay connected between fragmented lives & distant geography) Never could have imagined the number of unexpected people & stories it's ended up connecting so far... #missingmyfriend#fabricstories #2iq #sewing #postart #documentary #time #quilt #madebyhands #connection #fragments

This man thought itinerant quilting was a generally bad idea, but he took part anyway. ⠀⠀⠀⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric

Some contributors share great detail with their clothing, and others are more economic. This simply says "A memory of Marianne"#memory #marianne #fabricstories #2iq
