I need your hankies! For my forthcoming exhibition Then I'll Begin I am collecting fabric handkerchiefs. These will be knotted and exhibited suspending from the gallery ceiling above head height. I need about

50 altogether. If you can give or lend me your hankies, I would be so appreciative! Email me at the address below to find out more about how to send your handkerchiefs to me. I am also collecting stories around the hankies so if you have a story you are happy to share, this will be incorporated into the show.
