“The Trail Blazer”
Bettina’s respect for craft is equal to her respect for the environment. Without cutting or altering a beautifully tailored thrift store jacket, a simple basting stitch, often used for mending to hold things together, is applied. In cartographic terms this dotted line indicates a trail. The trail indicated on the jacket refers to Bettina’s encounters with the smoke of many fires that burned province-wide over recent summers.
