Make It Thursday
Thursday, March 15, 2012 - 6:00 pm
Megan Nicolay will demonstrate a handful of no-sew fabric construction techniques and teach participants how to apply them to make a scarf, a halter top, a refashioned T-shirt, and more.
Nicolay created Generation-T.com in 2005 to celebrate the ever-important concept of “project time” in our daily grind. It’s a time to drop everything, turn off the phone, turn off the TV, and make something—be it a picture frame or a poem, a handmade card or a batch of brownies. The T-shirt is Nicolay’s preferred medium—unparalleled in the world of fashion in terms of comfort, versatility, and longevity . . . and never in short supply. Everybody has a stash of old T-shirts won at sporting events, brought home from rock concerts, gathered at thrift stores, or saved as a random leftover of a relationship that didn’t quite work out (hey, he never came back to claim his Clash T-shirt?—it’s yours). Each T-shirt has a story, and it would be, sentimentally speaking, out of the question to get rid of it. So, in the spirit of environmentalism and anti-consumerism, Nicolay resuscitates, recycles, and refashions them.
