El Stitch y Bitch is thrilled to share their quilt-form ofrenda. Over the last 4 years, El Stitch y Bitch has created community through the one thing that unites this diverse group: the celebration of Do-It-Yourself culture. As a group mainly consisting of women from many walks of life we keep the tradition of the handmade alive through our regular knitting circle meetings. In our second ofrenda, we have carefully created a quilt out of love and continuity for those who have inspired us to create, work and live.

Participating El Stitch y Bitch artists:

Adriana Baltazar, Laura Barba, Linda Barba, Rayberth Arroyo Di Vicino, Mylene Domenech, Charly Garcia, Irasema Gonzalez, Erika Hernandez, Ma. Del Carmen Adriana Huerta, Claudia Marchán, Naomi Martinez, Victoria Martinez, Naomi Mendia, Giselle Mercier, Belia Ortega, Elvia Rodriguez-Ochoa, Kristina Roque, Thelma Uranga and Rachel Wallis

Hola everyone!

 

October is coming close to an end and with that comes Dia de los Muertos (DDLM). As many of you know, the altar we created last year is happily installed in its current home at the Indianapolis Art Center. The art center is having a DDLM celebration next Saturday, October 29th from noon-5pm. The celebration includes food, music and lots of fun art activities. I will be driving down with my family, and I’d like to extend the invitation to all of you. Depending on how many people are interested, we can carpool or we can just plan to meet at the art center. Please let me know if you are interested in coming and/or if you might be willing to be a driver. I will share more once I know these details. For now you can find more info here: http://www.indplsartcenter.org/dayofthedead2011/celebration.shtml

If you can’t make it next weekend, I hope to see you at our next Stitch y Bitch which will be on Wednesday, November 9th, location is TBD.

Have a great day!
