Bib & Tucker Sew-Op was a finalist for the 2013 Design Ignites Change | AIGA Professional Fellowship
Location: Birmingham, Alabama
About the projectBib & Tucker Sew-Op takes its name from British slang for a woman’s finest duds. Originating from the time when a woman’s wardrobe was quite modest and bibs or “tuckers” allowed for individualizing daily attire, the Sew-Op is a group of sewing enthusiasts who admire a life lived simply. The group embodies the spirit of locally made goods. Their long-term goal of creating a cottage industry that can support local designers is under way as they meet weekly to share knowledge and expand skill sets. Their short-term goal is educating school children about Alabama’s Freedom Quilt Bee of the Civil Rights Movement.
With its reputation of belligerence during the Civil Rights Movement, Birmingham still struggles with the past. How can the Sew-Op, a group of multiracial and multi-generational women, educate Birmingham’s children about the ways in which a community organization can play an effective role in eliminating prejudice?
The Sew-Op will develop a curriculum that illuminates the challenges and successes of the Freedom Quilting Bee of Wilcox County, Alabama, during the Civil Rights Movement. The Sew-Op will add its own experiences as an agent of change in the 21st century to show that a continuous thread carries from the past to the present.

If instances of self-questioning about working in-house become a catalyst for self-doubt, why not redirect some of that energy toward constructive self-evaluation? We can’t count on having control over everything that affects our design careers, but we can establish focus, build accountability and develop a newfound sense of assurance about our professional trajectory in-house.
