A Collaborative Project for you

sponsored

This just in from Lee Tusman, former Philadelphia artist, quilter and musician now based in Riverside California. Lee is soliciting volunteers to help him with a new t-shirt quilt he wants to make. If you have a t-shirt you don’t mind parting with and want your shirt to be part of Lee’s project, just follow the recipe instructions below. Here’s Lee’s request:

Many of you are familiar with my ripped up and sewn up quilts. Now, i ask for your assistance.

A recipe:
1. Take an old t-shirt (or other item of clothing). Stains, holes, etc are ok. Shirts with odd designs preferred (such as Don’s Quality Plumbing, Nyack Work It Week 2002, Oakdale Family Reunion 85…) or anything day-glo pink, hypercolor, or ridiculous.

2. Have someone take a picture of you wearing it. It does not need to fit. Spare white backgrounds are best. Email the photo to me. Write a few sentences about it if you like.

3. Mail the shirt to me:
Lee Tusman
5225 Pearblossom Dr #12
Riverside, CA 92507

4. I will receive it, cut it up, and sew it into one big patched up quilt.

The quilt will be displayed along with the photos. I will stick it on the web. I will probably display it in a few exhibits in a few places in a few states and/or countries. And I will probably do a few of these if it is successful. You will be given full credit for your assistance.

Lee's just bought a new sewing machine that looks like this one: "I just got a JUKI 555 DDL Industrial sewing machine. The thing is a monster. Can sew through anything, including canvas, heavy denim, sail cloth, etc. It weighs about as much as I do. It's older than I am, i think. It eats fabric and sews it up."
