I’ve found a new home for this roll of fabric that’s been stored in my closet for 2+ years now.
I was recently asked to join the board of The Crooked Canvas, an up-and-coming creative reuse center. It’s so new, I haven’t even made a website for them yet. So I have to get my gushing out here.
A creative reuse center combines two activities I feel are supremely important in life: recycling and making stuff. Wikipedia defines creative reuse as, “…the process of taking used or recycled materials and turning them into creative pieces of art, home decoration, or other useful items.” Think of a place that serves teachers, artists, or people like me who just like to make stuff. You could find arts & crafts materials, fabric, paper goods, and so much more.
I can’t get into all the details just yet. We still have to do board-y stuff like adopt our bylaws. But, we do have a space in Troy, NY above The Broken Mold studio.
Let me know if you want to help!
UPDATE 1/1/13: The website is up. And we’ve decided the space we had in Troy wasn’t large enough. More updates soon!
