Shave It: Reclaiming the Wilderness

Sewing Machine Sings While Mother Stitches Together Old Family Memories

A mother tells a story while she hems her daughter's pants on her Bernina sewing machine. A self-proclaimed imperfectionist, the mom doesn’t measure fabric or read instructions. After 50 years of sewing, you don’t need to follow anyone’s rules. Through a collage of old family photos, buttons, and string, the daughter gives texture to her mom’s memories of making clothes on her grandma's Singer sewing machine. 

Direction, animation, and design by Harriet Lenneman. Created at VCUarts, 2015.
