Persist, Resist: Nine Fabrics from Spoonflower for your Craftivism

Next month I’ll be vending at the TINY HANDS craft show to benefit Planned Parenthood. I’m excited to be involved in this event, not only because I support Planned Parenthood and its work, but because I get to finally participate in an act of craftivism. Ever since I read Craftivism by Betsy Greer I have wanted to find ways to use my skills to make a difference.

With thoughts of resist, persist and protest in mind I collected some designs from Spoonflower together to inspire your own crafting activism. Check out the gallery below:

And if you are in the Chicagoland area, consider coming out to the craft show and supporting Planned Parenthood.

 

Surprising and Impressive Feats

“The words I say, the actions I take, can be used for good.  Small acts can have a profound impact.  I’m the only one who can tell me I can’t do something, and I can achieve all manner of surprising and impressive feats if I can quiet that defeating voice.”
