Artful Bras - KCS-ARTFULBRAS. Hooters, Melons and Boobs, Oh My! Artful Bras: A Quilt Guild's Fight Against Breast Cancer.
In an effort to promote breast cancer awareness, this book celebrates the Artful Bra challenge of the Quilters of South Carolina quilt guild. Each participant took a padded underwire bra and covered it entirely, with everything from fabric to feather to fringe.
The result was the Artful Bra exhibit that traveled to various places in South Carolina, raising money for the Best Chance Network, a program that offers free mammograms to uninsured women. The impact was huge, however, with the help of the Internet. Emails with photos of the bras were forwarded all over the world – a success for the guild in spreading awareness about the disease.
Inside, you’ll find photographs of each of the 50 decorated bras with fun names such as “Hooters,” “Two Cans,” “Support Your Favorite Boob” and “Look At Them Ther’ Watermelons.” You’ll also read the designers’ stories about the inspiration behind the designs, and how they made them.
Proceeds from the book will be donated to the Best Chance Network.
