Watt's art is fundamentally about community. The sewing circles she organizes bring together diverse groups of people who contribute their time, skills, and energy, and equally as important their life experiences. These events are opportunities for storytelling and sharing and for building relationships. The art lies not only in the objects that result from these labors, but in the performance itself.

Below is a link to a video where Watt explains the inspiration and motivation behind her art.
