Please join us at Boots Bakery 24 W Main, Spokane, WA on August 25 from 6-9.
Craftivists of the Inland Northwest needs your help. The climate in our country is increasingly anti-immigrant , racist, and unsafe. In Spokane, Proposition 1 is on the November ballot. This proposition will legalize police profiling of people based on "perceived" citizenship status.
In response, we are stitching immigrant and diversity positive messages onto baby onesies in as many languages as possible. The basic message is "I am the future of the United States," but variations that celebrate our diversity are also welcome.
An installation of the onsies will be on display in the Community Building (35 W Main, Spokane, WA) during the month of September.
We are hoping for at least 100 stitched onesies in different languages, handwriting, and stitches. Displayed together they will show our mutual dependency and strength to stand up against the current xenophobic and hateful climate.
An additional Stitch-A-Long and installation is scheduled for September 9. Exact details to come.
Baby onesies and supplies will be available or you can bring your own. Feel free to stop by and learn about the project and stitch or take supplies and go home.
Craftivism is a slow activism that is not about perfection but more about mindfulness and community sharing and collaboration.
