4th Fridays from 6-9pm are a way to connect to community through sewing, this time for FREE! Madam Chino is hosting monthly Community Patchwork Free Sew "Positive Words" Fabric Mural Sewing Sessions, and you don't need to know how to sew! Transform community donated reuse fabrics into a positive community word-art fibers installation to be displayed in an impactful street-facing billboard. MC is currently working on developing the building permit plans to install a rotating community art mural billboard installation site on the 63rd street side of the new Madam Chino building at 6301 W. Lincoln Ave in West Allis! Sign up online in advance to reserve one of up to 6 spots per month. Names of community partakers will be installed in a plaque next to the installation, which will stay up as long as it takes to make the next one!! The current mural is "KINDNESS" and will require a few more sessions to complete, so please join!~
