Animation: “Bernina Sings”

I just came across this textile animation, as part of my over-research into publicity for a charity button sale in September.  (Standby for a tsunami of button-related blog posts comin’ atcha in the next wee while.)

When I say that “Bernina” is a make of sewing machine, you begin to get the picture.  This good-humoured animation is made with needle, thread and family recollections – using an assortment of animation techniques including stop motion dancing buttons, drawing and stitching on photographs.  I like it, Harriet Lenneman!  Thank you for making.

Creativity Takeaway

Do you have a family story you could recreate with animation?
