Scrapbox Contestants - Shari Moraga

A couple times a day for the next week or so you will find features right here about the creative adventurers who jumped, with both feet into the wild world of textile recycling by joining me for Crispina’s Scrapbox Challenge 2020.  This came about due to the overflowing scrap bins in my ‘zero-waste’ company and my lack of time and focus to use said material to develop new product.  

The call went out on March 1, 2020 and applications stayed open for a solid week.  The response was AMAZING!  Limited only by the volume of scrap in my studio, we chose 50 people at random from the pool, to participate in the challenge.

Crispina's Scrapbox Challenge is part recycling ingenuity, part creative high-jinx and part design competition. Online voting kicks off right here on Earthday. One GRAND PRIZE winner and three runners up will be chosen by voters. Bookmark this link and be sure to participate by voting!

Today we introduce Shari Moraga, Shari is a dear friend, college roommate AND an amazing artist - you can see what I mean on her website www.leosdrygoods.com

Here are her words:

I Graduated Mass. College of art with a BFA in Fibers. I went on to have a career in decorative painting, doing trompe l'oeil murals and faux finishes in NYC. I have always loved textiles, since I was a little girl, and after painting for 25 years decided to return to working with it. I lived with a woman when I was in college, that created fantasy animal sculptures with used sweaters. She later went on to win many awards and become a pioneer in the textile recycling movement.

I learned of the Scrapbox Challenge on IG.

I loved doing this challenge to connect with women from all over, and see their creativity.

I love my family, where I live and my friends. All joyful.

For this challenge I decided to include the needs of the family! We use a Nutra Ninja everyday to make smoothies. The machine is incredibly loud and needed a cozy. It works really well. I used most of the scraps to quilt it.
