Show Setup, Day 3: Almost there!

It was a full day of stitching my installation together today, and I think it’s really looking like something now! It’s amazing what a difference a bunch of mattress stitch and backstitch makes to pull things together and add cohesion. No photos today—my hands were too busy!

Well, just for fun, here’s one photo that I took a while back when I was doing the shoot for the invite.


The opening is tomorrow night (or tonight, if you’re reading this on Thursday)—I can’t wait! If you’re in the NYC area, please join me 7-9 pm at gallery hanahou in Soho. Then the show will be up until the end of the month. (The gallery hours are limited to weekdays noon to 6 pm.)

If you’re nowhere near the NYC area but are instead closer to Seattle, be sure to check out “Plush You!,” which is opening this Friday (5-9 pm) at Schmancy and other venues! I don’t have any work in that show this year, but there will be tons of amazing plushes from all kinds of plush makers.

  1. I’m so excited for your show tomorrow! It’s currently my motivation for getting through a dreaded midterm exam tomorrow morning!

  2. I am very glad it is coming together for you. Sadly living on the other side of the globe, I can’t get to the exhibition, but I have watching it develop with eagerness. It has been looking great so far and I am sure it will look fantastic (and super cute) for the opening. Best of luck with it all!

  3. Oh, boy! We’re counting the hours til we leave Oklahoma and travel to wonderful NYC and your masterpiece!

  4. Wow! All these sneak peaks look amazing. Am so jealous of those who are able to go. Good luck!

  5. I’ve been looking forward to this so much! I’m so sad to hear that they are closed on weekends because I was planning to go this weekend to see everything. Do you know if they will be closed Monday for Columbus Day?

  6. Good luck!!! Since I’m too far away to join in, I’m sending two of my good friends (and knitters)…They will be there opening night!!! Please share lots of photos for those of us that can’t attend.

  7. It is to bad that they are not open on the weekends, but I hope that I can come. Show lots of photos since I might not be there. This afternoon, I was thinking “I wonder how the sewing is going for Anna!”.
