The latest from our Studio Visit series is a chat with Sally DeCicco, sewing enthusiast, upcycler and maker of 800 face masks (and counting!), which she has provided, by donation, to the communities of her two hometowns, Montpelier, Vermont and Eastport, Maine. Sally reflects in the piece on finding meaningful action during the pandemic time, and about her lifelong passion for sewing (with a lot of laughs along the way). A longtime EAC volunteer, Sally has been active with our annual Moose Island Follies shows and as a costumer for Stage East productions. She also serves in the Eastport community as one of the Friends of Peavey Memorial Library.
