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
