Planned Parenthood Stitch-Ins with artist Chi Nguyen

  • HiLo + Ör Gallery and Tavern Hudson + Catskill Columbia + Greene Counties (map)

Drop Forge & Tool welcomes back artist Chi Nguyen once again for two more stitch-in installments, on the heels of the radically successful RALLY IN THE VALLEY weekend last month!

Chi and Drop Forge collaborated during RITV weekend to host two stitch-ins, creating a community quilt that demonstrates public support and raises awareness for the important services provided by Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood (UHPP). The quilt visually represents the different communities across Columbia and Greene counties that UHPP serves daily in order to make it clear for local and federal lawmakers that their constituents stand with UHPP. The quilt will be shown to members of Congress when they are home for the August Recess.

The quilt is getting there... but needs more pairs of hands! So we invite ANY and ALL to our two open + FREE stitch-ins, this time out in the worlds of Columbia + Greene Counties:

Sat Aug 19, 1 - 5pm: HiLo @ 365 Main Street in Catskill
Sun Aug 20, 11am - 3pm: Ör Gallery and Tavern @ 35 S 3rd St in Hudson

Please RSVP to the facebook event page so we can estimate how many materials to prepare.

All materials will be provided and quilting lessons will be given to newbies. All skill levels are welcome. Drop by and put your hands to work!
