For anyone who sews--or doesn't!--this is something you MUST read.I am sending as many labels as I can cut!! http://www.jsonline.com/onwisconsin/arts/dec03/192093.aspIn one beautiful and disturbing work, Milwaukee artist Terese Agnew is binding together this sweatshop worker in Bangladesh, activist-photographer Kernaghan and hundreds of people like the 78-year-old retired garment worker.Agnew is making a quilt by piecing together tens of thousands of donated garment labels. In it, names such as Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Liz Claiborne blur and recede and the image of the young garment worker comes forward.The hope, Agnew says, is that people who see the quilt will make a tangible connection between the things they buy and the people who make those things, between the names on labels and the nameless people who all too often suffer unimaginable abuses.You MUST see the picture of the quilt and read the article.
