i've teamed up with textile whiz kid shannon gerard for this community rope project. we'll be using cashmere & merino wool scraps from the sartoria studio, along with the cotton ribbon of wishes & dreams, to create the rope. it will be on display until the show ends at the end of april, re-appearing at the Gather in the County - Modern Textile Market on june 15th in Picton, ON. we are hoping it will find a home in a community space in Prince Edward County after the festival.
