Shot my neighbors from a distance in this mask drop off. For quarantine sake, no hug was exchanged
I’ve been thinking a lot about the definition of women’s work and craft. As we face this pandemic it is now crafters and sewists who help keep us afloat as medical workers take the frontlines along with essential employees. It’s our community based efforts that hold us together amidst a government that could’ve acted faster. I’m feeling glad as I look back on my splurge for a sewing machine a few months back. It’s interesting to see funding that supposedly could’ve never reached those who are artists, chronically ill, disabled, and in need suddenly be available. It only took a pandemic to see more funding than ever before, yet now it’s accessible and equally distributed—if you aren’t undocumented or incarcerated.
