I am creating an installation at the new Blend Studios Art Gallery at the Arcade in Nashville. This installation is to bring awareness for the need of textile recycling in America. We are a country of stuff and often just throw it away only to fill our landfills. There are recycling programs for plastic, glass, aluminum but rarely do you see one for textiles. According to the Council for Textile Recycling every American on average throws away 68 pounds of fabric each year!
