Artist talk: Saturday, June 7, at noon (following the artist talk, please join the sewing circle)

Sewing Circle Invitation
People are invited to stay and sew during Marie's open-to-the-community sewing circle directly following the June 7th artist talks at the gallery.

@johnhenrytweets will be printing and tweeting blanket stories from the sewing circle.

Marie is also encouraging the community to donate blankets, and their blanket stories, to become part of the Tacoma Art Museum sculpture. These blankets will be transformed into cast bronze. A small silkscreen print will be exchanged for people helping with stitching and blanket contributions.
