The Sewing Circle Project
The Sewing Circle Project assists newcomer, refugee, and immigrant textile artists to produce and sustain their traditional art forms and share their work and cultural expressions with public audiences. ICR’s Connecticut Cultural Heritage Arts Program, often working with various Hartford-based refugee groups, service providers, and regional folk arts organizations, develops exhibits, training sessions, artist gatherings, and marketing opportunities for Sewing Circle artists. Group members include Bosnian weavers, Somali basket makers, Burmese Karen weavers, Hmong embroiderers, and Iranian lace makers.
