Tiny Pricks Project

As mentioned on Here and Now, WBUR Boston

Tiny Pricks is an ongoing community project in which participants stitch quotes by Trump into antique textiles to create a material record of his presidency. Since Weymar started the collaborative project in January of 2018, over hundreds of people across the world have submitted unique, hand-stitched contributions. This exhibition marks the first time the work will be on display in Maine. As a call to action, Weymar and Speedwell Projects invite the public to participate by contributing to the Tiny Pricks public archive. 

Tiny Pricks Projects holds a creative, accessible and cathartic space during a tumultuous political climate. The series counterbalances the impermanence of Twitter, other social media, and Trump’s statements by utilizing vintage textiles as a memory-making timeline. Weymar references the key role embroidery played in the women’s suffrage movement and notes it is symbolic of warmth, comfort, craft, civility, care, and a shared history. 

July 22, 2019, the New Yorker Magazine highlighted this project
