I’ve been printing out more quotes from the material in the archives and they were dry enough to finish arranging and pinning onto the backing cloth yesterday. It now measures about two yards long.
The following image is a quote from a letter from the Rev Clay. It was this that made me decide to work with pieces of recycled and left over fabrics. I didn’t think that during the middle of the lockout that these girls would have lengths of new material to play with, much more likely to be patching, darning and making over.
I’m not sure how long it will take to sew but I’ve a deadline of somewhere mid September I think.
