Grecolaborativo is a full-family collaboration, a couple creating textile art, costumes, installations, video, conceptual art, and social practice art with their teenage daughter and son. We are feral teachers, transdisciplinary learners, internet librarians, and idea sommeliers. We ask a lot of questions. We make things. We are comfortable in studios, museums, libraries, and classrooms. We love to play. We work well with others. We enjoy long walks, exploring, and conversation. We appreciate the slow and the small. We speak Spanish and English.

When my hands are busy, my mind is at peace. I can have conversations with my friends, family, the other people in the waiting room while I applique away. I like to make and it allows me to squeeze in a little bit of making time when life is busy and time is short. Most obviously, it’s fabric and thread - two of my favorite things.

Today I had the opportunity to show a young refugee woman from DRC Congo how to work a used sewing machine she had received as a gift (none other than a Montgomery Ward UHT-J 1943 Heavy Duty model, a vintage beauty!). I told her she was lucky to have such a tool in her hands and how grateful I was for letting me show her how it works. We are planning on doing some simple projects together to get more practice.

**If you have any sewing notions or materials (and clothes, food, or furniture) to donate to Bridge Of Hope, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hablando con Chile - Talking to Chile

Hablo con mi tia en Chile y me hace recordar dichos que ya no uso pero claramente entiendo cuando me hablan:

"Uno ve caras pero no ve corazones"

"Como loro en el alambre"

************************************************

I talk to my aunt in Chile and she reminds me of some expressions that I do not use anymore but that I still clearly understand:

"One sees faces but doesn’t see hearts"

"Like a parrot on a wire"
