Oklahoma participates in a community/international project depicting some of the inane, insane and outrageous things that Donald Trump has said or tweeted by using textiles that embody warmth, craft, permanence, civility, and a shared history. The daintiness and strength of each piece stands in a stark contrast to his presidency. Liggett Studio will host a couple of "stitch & bitch" embroidery workshop sessions for anyone who would like to learn how to do simple embroidery work and at the end of the exhibit, each piece will be sent to the curator, Diana Weymar, who will then add our works with others across the world and plans to exhibit 2020 artworks.
