Kodiak Community Stitch Project – Portraits due 3/31/2019!

October 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


All portraits are due by MARCH 31st, 2019!

Drop your pieces off at the museum between 10-2pm, Tuesday through Friday. There is a box inside the entry way for collection. Please clearly write your first and last name on a backside corner of the fabric with pen or pencil.

Thank you for stitching!


Hand stitched self portraits can be powerful and intriguing pieces of art that can tell moving, personal stories. We invite you to share yours with us.

The Kodiak Community Stitch Project aims to be a collaborative, slow craft, community art project that facilitates sharing stories and hand-work skills, celebrates individuality and fosters togetherness. There is a focus on working with Kodiak youth, but the overall goal is to collect as many hand embroidered self portraits as possible to represent our diverse island community in an exhibit opening in spring 2019.
