Ladies Fancywork Society

July 15, 2013

Ladies Fancywork Society
The Ladies Fancywork Society has been bringing a feminine touch to the tough world of street art since 2007 by tagging Denver’s street signs, seedy corners, and sunny benches with a little bit of ladylike crochet. Their work includes the rogue Legwarmers installation on Jonathan Barofsky’s Dancers sculpture, 360 feet of Wildgarden installed at the Millennium bridge, Fancygasm at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art, and Slave To The Craft- a massive yarn-ball-and-chain installed covertly on Lawrence Agent’s I See What You Mean, (a.k.a. the Big Blue Bear). They believe in taking ownership of our surroundings, and putting skirts on the world is their way of doing it. Look for their work on a street corner near you.

1. What is your hometown?

Denver, Colorado!

2. With what fictional character do you most identify?

The Little Mermaid. Because we live under the sea in our world, and we like snarfblats and forks and flounder. 

3. In the movie of your life, cast an actor to play you.

The cast of Charlie’s Angels- but the new one, obviously. 

4. What work of art speaks to your soul?

The Demon Horse. Literally, it speaks to our souls. You don’t want to know what it’s telling us to do. 

5. What books are you currently reading or recommending?

…Books? Do you mean crochet hooks? Cause that’s all we ever pick up. 

6. What song or album is currently in heavy rotation on your iPod?

TLC. Ludacris. Disney. 

7. What’s the last movie that made you cry?

Fast and the Furious- all of them. 

8.  Cat person or dog person?

Both person.

9. What is more important, truth or kindness?

Eh. We vote for moxie. 

10.    How do you define sin?

Calling us knitters. 

11.    How do you define virtue?

Milk and cookies. Sugar and spice. Blah blah blah. 

12.   Design your headstone: What does it say? What does it look like?

It’s a big first place trophy for kicking ass. 

Bonus Question: Who would you like to see answer these questions?

Adam Lerner!
