In Size Doesn’t Matter When You Make Your Own Clothes at PechaKucha Night Knoxville Vol. 20, Owner Burke Brewer shares how sewing transformed her love of her body, forced her to consider the consequences of buying clothing, and finally why everyone should take up the art of garment sewing.

The Beast Has No Belly

BY JIM BRUNBERG
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

It's pat to say we have more common ground than we have differences.  Yet, we just said it. There is an art to dropping assumptions, in approaching people and issues without prejudice, as children do. Jim Brunberg believes the next step is actually hearing the stories, and sharing them in a way that doesn't pander, condescend, or otherwise filter the truth or rob it of its nuance.
