Convo On Creating New Textiles

trying something where original “tweets” happen here versus on Twitter first

Spoke w/a woman the other day who takes scrap clothing and turns them into new materials, new textiles. She didn’t like the waste, and her artistic leanings took over.

Interesting note from convo: how her craft was shaped by a New England culture/attitude but Appalachian craft & values. How she sees sustainable stuff is in a shape rarely heard/seen. What didn’t work out with textile folks in the region screams of disruption coming from places you didn’t see coming.
