This project focuses in the commonalities in the need for skill building, knowledge expansion, and access to resources
related to garment making disciplines including, but not limited to home and industrial sewing, fashion, costuming, upcycling
and Cos-play. These disciplines are brought together under the umbrella term wearable art. To gain access to
members and data, a partnership was established with Textile Center, a national nonprofit fiber arts organization. The
themes of art versus craft, educating the audience, self-expression, aura, and the conceptual framework of dress from the
literature review are all echoed in the findings and bring insight to the challenges experienced at the practitioner level.
