STITCH, a weekly ongoing, community-based sewing bee to support *The Spirit Tapestry Project* on the Road, Chico, California
A major component of Sugar In Our Blood: The Spirit of Black and Queer Identity in the Art of Ramekon O'Arwisters, at the African American Art & Cultural Complex (AAACC), San Francisco, California in JUNE 2013 is The Spirit Tapestry Project. The Spirit Tapestry Project, a community-based project, comprises eight to ten large tapestries made from intimate apparel using the folk-art tradition of rag-rug making and crocheting.

The Spirit Tapestry Project will be on display at the de Young Museum, San Francisco, during my artist-in-residence in April 2012.
