HEY GUYS: My friend Gretel is starting this cool project where she collects work-related garments from women and uses them to make a quilt! Please check out her Tumblr and consider submitting something!
From her Tumblr:
A woman’s work is never done; yet they pay us less for it, they degrade us for it and they refuse to call it work. The Women’s Work Project seeks to bring women’s work garments together in a quilt: combining what is considered women’s work with what women actually do.
First, I am requesting submissions from a diverse set of women that represent a diversity in what is considered to be women’s work. Ideally, the submissions to this project would reflect in part the diversity that is women’s work.
After a minimum of 5 submissions, I will begin to piece squares and document the progress.
Each 10” block will be made using primarily one woman’s garment. Other garment scraps or bought fabric will supplement the block. As I finish a block, I will showcase the women who has given me the garment and their stories.
