The Pi Project is a wonderfully different crowd-source fiber project that needs YOUR help! This community group is creating a fabric ribbon of the digits of Pi. I sent my “5,” but they need lots more numbers from fiber artists. It needn’t take long and you will help put fiber art in the spotlight. The deadline is ASAP, but they will accept numbers arriving by the end of January 2015.
From the Pi Project:
Next March 14, the date will be 3/14/15, which matches the first five digits of Pi: 3.1415. Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, is arguably the most significant number in history. Many celebrate Pi Day each year, but this next Pi Day is special. This alignment of digits will not occur again for a century.
We are celebrating the number Pi by creating a fabric ribbon of its digits, stretching as long as we can make it, whether that be 20 feet or 2000 feet. The digits will be sewn on in the actual order they appear in Pi.
Help us by creating as many numbers as you can for this fiber happening. Not only is it a fun and educational project, but it will put fiber art in the spotlight (for once). School classrooms, quilt guilds, surface design artists, painters, politicians, military personnel, those in law enforcement — and anyone else — are all welcome to participate.
