DONATE –  Contribute your unused fabric to help make the piece! We are covering a building and we need a lot of materials! Looking for cotton, sheets, pants, and non-stretchy fabric, and sewing tools such as needles, thread, and scissors. We could also use sewing machines. For questions or to arrange donations, contact

CUT – Help cut fabric to form the chevron shape which will make a true spectacle!

SEW –  Help sew with easy straight stiches on a sewing machine (tutoring available!) to physically bind the donated fabrics into it’s awesome shape.

CONVERSE – Help cheer on people working, make new friends and meet other community members, learn and collaborate

It will be a fun day of volunteerism and artmaking!  Bring your craft-loving family members and friends!
