Stitch-by-Stitch: A Numbered Meditation

Drawn in chalk, stitch by stitch, from the center out, this giant and colorful crocheted doily will transform the pavement of downtown Greensboro. Every one hundred stitches will be visualized with a different color of chalk. The completed drawing and meditative performance will make public and visible the number of stitches in the doily, a reference to the gendered labor that often becomes invisible when looking at a completed piece of handwork, piece of lace or other handmade product largely produced by women both locally and globally.
