THOUSAND PERSON STITCHES” Exhibition at SUPERFROG Gallery

"THOUSAND PERSON STITCHES" Exhibition at SUPERFROG Gallery

Exhibition and Reception on October 27th & 28th, 2012

The Senninbari Project is working to help rebuild lives. Senninbari means “Thousand Person Stitches”. The Japanese believe that a garment sewn by many people becomes an amulet, protecting the wearer from danger and clothing them in prayers. The goal of the Senninbari project is to form a sewing collective for these women. The hope is to exhibit the pieces sewn sharing the resilience of the women of Tohoku during this hard time. Items will also be created the will be for sale. For more about them, visit www.senninbari.com/
