SEW-IN Fundraiser

A SEW-IN fundraiser for Pussy Riot was held by Jen Bruce, Carole Frances Lung, Christy Roberts and Jemima Wyman at the Institute 4 Labor Generosity Workers & Uniforms in Long Beach, on the 27th October, 2013. We proposed a 17 hour sewing action in solidarity with Nadezhda Tolokonnikova who went on a hunger strike to protest the long hours she was being forced to sew in prison. For more specific info related to the event check the Facebook invitation. The Free Pussy Riot Crazy Quilt and hanging window work are from an ongoing series by Jemima, whereby photos are sewn onto recycled fabric.
