video love :: Madga Sayeg, installation knit artist, yarn bomber extraordinaire

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. - Steve Jobs

Madga Sayeg.  You may not know her name, but if you're a knitter, I bet you are familiar with at least one of her works of art.  This short video interview by the Wall Street Journal is so inspiring.  I can certainly identify with how she talks about a small idea turnin big, going viral and becoming something outside of yourself.  My Red Thread Project® started as a double dare from a curator to see if I could find a meaningful way to connect a university to the local town.  7,000 handknit hats later with emails from reporters worldwide, full samba bands and teaching over 1,000 children how to knit, the project cease to be an idea and took on its on reality.  In other words, when you have an idea - go for it!
