Not so very long ago, recycling was a way of life, not a trend. A surprising, if not charming, reminder of this wended itself my way at an antique shop in Brunswick, ME. A feed sack, of all things, was purposed for fiber art! Utterly functional in getting supplies to the farm, this beautiful coral cotton sack was printed with inks that are easily removed expressly for the purpose of allowing the cloth to become a dress, a curtain, a pair of knickers. It is a fabulous concept that I had never come across before. I’m completely enamored. As my husband and I continued our flea market hopping, as we are known to do, this fabulous thing that I had never been aware of before kept presenting itself. And I lost all control. I purchased every feed, salt, and growing ration sack from Woolwich to Bath. And now, to the studio. Must. Sew.
