Jude and Glennis and I hatched a little Slow Cloth group on Facebook. Please join us if you're a member of that demon seed that I spend too much time on wonderful invention. We have a great community coming together, with designers, stitchers, artists, fiber and clothing entrepreneurs, teachers, dyers, knitters, activists, garment people, textile collectors--all kinds of people who share an interest in exploring, using, and appreciating textiles and fabric in a meaningful way. We're still figuring out what to do with our growing group; it's ripe with possibilities.
I think Slow Cloth is a good moniker (with a nod of appreciation to the Slow Food movement for inspiring the concept) but I get frustrated that "slow" sometimes has a connotation of dull, pokey, lacking energy, unexciting, and even uninteresting. That's not us! At least, not on most days. So come on in and join up.
