Stitch yourself for London's Science Museum

stitchyourselfWelcome to the laboratory, Dr Frankenstitch
You are here to take part in the ultimate stitching + science experiment.
Stitch London has teamed up with London’s Science Museum to create a Stitch Yourself exhibit for the re-opening of their Who Am I? gallery in June 2010. You are invited to contribute a tiny Stitched Self and take part in scientific stitching history.
You can send in your contributions from anywhere in the world.
Your Stitching + Creativity = A Stitched Self
We've spent hours in the dank shadows of the Stitch London lab conducting all manner of crafty stitching experiments to produce three 'blank body' patterns.
These are the humble beginnings of your handmade 'Stitched Self'.

You become Dr Frankenstitch!
The idea is that you work your stitching science on your blank body to create a tiny version of you. You're not limited to our patterns though. Feel free to make your own.
There are only three rules:
1. Your Stitched Self must be approx. 6 inches/15 cm tall
2. Your Stitched Self must arrive before the 26th of June 2010
3. You must include your name and where you are from
Send your Stitched Selves to: Lauren O'Farrell

This exhibit is to give vision and voice to the experiences of all those affected by breast cancer. The mission of this exhibit is to bring awareness of breast cancer and how it affects survivors, patients, families and friends who have stories to share. It is to increase community awareness and healing through art.

This exhibition is a celebration of strength, courage, fragility and feeling expressed through painting, collage, sculpture, dance, storytelling, film/video and song.

The “Dance of Life”  will have an auction of embellished bras that  will be exhibited alongside works of art at the opening reception. We are  organizing multiple events centered around the event.

If you or your organization in the DFW area would like to set up a workshop to create embellished bras, I’ll be glad to attend and help get it going.

Everyone is invited to participate in this event.
All entries are donated  for the Auction.
All entries will be exhibited and Auctioned and there are no returns.
Funds raised will go to a local cancer research/recovery facility.
