Leslie Tucker Jenison and Jane La Fazio doing the what?
Arts for peace, an idea as timely now as in the 60's. Make art not war!
Pokey Bolton was the Emcee and had a wonderful time in the process.
She introduced the design team, the Mod Squad, (see above) setting prices for their design assistance...prices included singing "I Got You Babe", dancing in the aisles, singing along with the Beach Boys and more. Participants could "buy" design assistance if willing to make utter and total fools of themselves which they did willingly! At least they had the lyrics!
I got invited to "help" sing along with the Beach Boys. Although I was not a participant, I was a GREAT Cheerleader...any surprise there? Pokey gave me a prize! Bali Pops, 2 inch strips of the most beautiful batiks by Hoffman Fabrics.
The participants stitched with pipe cleaners, glue etc. making art-to-wear and then had to line up and parade the creations. Here is Jean Impey, art quilter extraordinaire contempating her creation....
After one hour of design work, pure fun and more silliness, it was time for the runway strut! Here you goooooo.

Check out the lady from France on the left, fun foam guitar in hand, and reefer madness in her eyes...amazing how many quilters know how to roll a...well, you know! She let me know after requesting that I take her picture with her camera, that her inspiration was Jimi Hendrix....hmmmmm!
Pokey and her desgn crew picked winnners, I don't know how! Everybody had so much fun we were all winners! Jean and her friend personified the 60's
Don't bogart that doilly, ladies!
