Tea Party WITH RESIDENT ARTIST LIZ MIGLIORELLI AKA SISTER SPINSTER

Stop by for tea or bring your own lunch to this informal meeting with our knowledgable resident artist. Liz will share her knowledge of herbs, recommend the right herb for the situation, and answer any questions. And of course, she will serve herbal tea.

Liz Migliorelli is a western herbalist and magic maker who believes in affordable, accessible, community-based health care and the healing power of plants. She came to the herbal path through her own healing crisis as well as a frustration with the loss of ancestral wisdom and privatization of health care in the United States. Disenchanted by sterile doctor’s offices, she believes in the healing that comes from our own gardens, the local land and our kitchens. She is devoted to encouraging others to find empowerment through self-care and harm reduction, to find healing in a cup of fir tip and strawberry leaf tea, and to find magic in the simple practices that connect us to the Earth.

STITCH IN for reproductive rights + Fri 2/26 5-8p

STITCH IN for reproductive rights + Fri 2/26 5-8p

Eliza Fernand will host a stich-in for reproductive rights as part of artist Chi Nguyen's activist project, Draw the Line: 5.4 Million and Counting. Come embroider for reprodcutive rights in Texas, and have your work become part of a quilt to be used at the Supreme Court rally on March 2nd, 2016.
All materials and intruction will be provided by Eliza, there is no cost, and you are welcome to drop in for any amount of time.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:
On March 2nd, 2016, the United States Supreme Court will hear the most important reproductive rights case in almost 25 years. The decision will determine whether Texas can shut down nearly all abortion care providers in the state and prevent 5.4 million women of reproductive age from accessing the healthcare they need.

Using craft as activism, artist Chi Nguyen — in partnership with the Textile Arts Center and the Center for Reproductive Rights — is holding a series of stitch-ins to make physical the number of women whose right to safe and legal abortion is currently at risk. With each line representing an individual woman, the 5.4 Million and Counting project is only finished when all 5.4 million lines are embroidered.

The public is invited to Draw the Line by joining the embroidery process at the stitch-ins, or by sending in your own 10×10” swatches with as many tally marks (卌) as you would like to embroider. All swatches will be patched onto a larger quilt to be used at the Supreme Court rally on March 2nd, 2016.
