What is a Party Roll?
Make your own party roll with this beautifully curated kit by fiber artist, Meg Spitzer. What’s a party roll you ask? It’s a versatile mini tapestry, 100% recycled and repurposed... the ultimate no-waste wall hanging.
How was it born?
Met with an abundance of scrap rope, yarn, roving and recycled fibers, Meg started making fun rollable micro weaves that gave new life to what would otherwise be textile waste. A funky texture laden rollable “party" of a tapestry, this cute lil’ bite sized mini fits anywhere and makes a unique gift or perfect addition to a column, entryway, office or gallery wall.

Who planned this party?
Meg Spitzer received a BFA from the University of Florida in 2005, moved to NYC and mostly fell out of her personal art practice until 2018, when she suddenly found herself on the other side of the country with two small children and a desperate desire to make art again. She had trouble finding a medium that fit her current life until she was gifted a macrame kit and realized she had never explored textiles or fiber art. Meg completed it within a couple hours and immediately ordered more rope. With seemingly endless techniques and possibilities to explore, fiber art immersed her, re-centered and grounded her in her past as an artist, while gracing her with a flexible timeline. The patterns and knots became a meditation practice, a calm space just for her.
Meg is a Los Angeles based fiber artist known for her vivid and playful art deco inspired tapestries. Her pieces exist where macrame, weaving and fiber sculpture collide. Meg’s work is an exploration of color and is largely material based, as even the most intricate pieces were born from a fiber on hand that she wanted to showcase as thoughtfully as possible. Through her work, she explores movement and balance, and the push and pull that fiber is able to demonstrate so well. Each piece of hers is designed and created in her studio at home.
Trust me. You're not gonna want to miss this party!
