Lynne and Evan Weinberger did this sculpture as part of the Totem Garden for the State Fair of Texas, 2008. Evan forged the needle, complete with an eye for the thread. The spool of thread started it's life as a spool from electrical cable. They disassembled it, lengthened the body, dressed up the ends, and used baling twine as the thread. No small feat in an area that only bales with wire.
