As we close 2015, it’s clear that curvy girls are trending and DIY is the new, hip way of life – especially here in California. We noticed, however, that the mainstream curvy girl, maker, artist, DIY, recycle/upcycle, let’s-put-our-own-handmade-stamp-on-our-custom-made-lives conversation often misses the diverse embodied experiences and cultural contributions of Black women. Suga Puddin’ was born out of a desire to emphasize that we are here, too. That is, Black women sewists, makers, artists, domestic engineers, food magicians, and creatives of all kinds are present in the space, and we always have been. We, too, sing self-made shenanigans. We, too, make do and mend. We, too, are inventors of lovely. We, too, press our creative spirits and talents into service to make functional and beautiful lives. We love and are inspired by one another. So, why not make a communal space – a home – where our rich voices can add to the conversation; where we can tell of our traditions, and add to our collective legacy? Have you been thinking the same thing? Are you now? Well then, you’re in the right place, Suga. www.SugaPuddinGuild.com
