PRLog - Jan. 19, 2011 - PITTSBURGH -- Traveling today is very challenging. The airlines discourage checking bags. You practically have to get undressed before the TSA staff and fellow passengers. You are permitted to hold only two items to board the plane. How does one handle a carry-on suitcase, a computer, a purse, a phone, cosmetics, and a snack without being stopped and harassed?

The perfect solution is a huge over-size denim carryall made from an outdated pair of overalls. This Carryall, recycles the obsolete clothing taking up space in your closet into a new functional existence so that you can travel unencumbered with ease.

Louise Silk, quilter extraordinaire, works from her studio, altering unused jeans of all sizes and shapes into any number of useful products such as totes, tablecloths, bed covers, and ponchos. In today’s challenging environment Recycling Denim is a form of upcycling or transforming unused goods into something more valuable than their current state.

With years of experience making Memory Quilts, Louise converts all kinds of clothing into something totally fresh and useful. In the case of Memory Quilts, she transforms a loved one’s clothing and textiles into a unique memory quilt that becomes a loving visual history for its lucky recipient. Using favorite items no longer worn but not easily discarded increases the meaningful nature of the quilt. A Memory Quilt is the perfect gift to help a loved one transition out of their past into their present life situation.

With her wealth of experience quilt artist Louise Silk creatively transforms t-shirts, clothing, ties, and wedding dresses, into lap or bed quilts, wall hangings, pillows, shawls, baby quilts or carryalls. These become meaningful and functional gifts to celebrate any occasion or special event. All quilts are individually handcrafted to your specifications. She proudly guarantees delivery in less than four weeks and always works within your budgetary constraints.

   Louise Silk, founder of SilkQuilt, resides and works in Pittsburgh, PA. For over thirty years she has been creating art that celebrates the loving and healing capacity of spirit. She began making Memory Quilts when she personally experienced the transformational healing power resident in the process of selecting, cutting and re-stitching clothing into quilts to mourn the loss of her parents. She is the author of "The Quilting Path: A Guide to Spiritual Discovery through Fabric, Thread, and Kabbalah." published by SkyLightPaths Publishing.
