Sen-nin-bari (1000 Stitches)

madeoutofteardrops

I have a piece in Sen-nin-bari (1000 Stitches)  Sept. 17-Oct. 9 2011                              Kobo at Higo 604 South Jackson st. Seattle WA  (206) 381-3000                           Opening reception: Sept. 17, 5:00-7:00pm

During World War II, both Japanese women in Japan and Japanese Americans in the U.S. made amulets called, ” Senninbari“  for the soldiers who left their homes and families to fight in the war.  Women and community members gathered together and for each soldier stitched one thousand stitches using  red thread on a special  cloth.  These stitched amulets were given to the soldiers for their protection and for their safe return home.
