Learn a new way to celebrate feminist icons on Saturday, August 25 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Because these incredible people deserve to be celebrated and channeled as we contend with our current sociopolitical climate, we’re having a special edition of MODA’s subversive cross-stitch workshop where we'll be stitching feminist icons.

Cross-stitch is a type of embroidery in which the needlework creates images that look pixelated. Traditionally a way for society to measure a woman’s marriageability, cross-stitch has recently become a vehicle for craftivism (craft activism) and used to assert diverse identities and demand social change. Grab a needle and thread and fabric and join us in this special cross stitch class!

You’ll learn about how cross-stitch got to be subversive, cross-stitching basics, design creation, and how to bring that design into reality. Bring your passion and we’ll provide the hoops, needles, embroidery floss, and patterns of feminist icons.

Participation and Materials Fee: $35 for non-members, $30 for MODA members. Or, bring along a friend and pay $50 for a Buddy Pack for Two Adults. This fee covers everything you need to create and bring home your own awesome cross stitch: 4" hoop, AIDA cloth, needle, threader, embroidery floss, and many patterns of feminist icons to choose from. Fee includes admission to MODA’s current exhibition, Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism. Appropriate for ages 16+. Please reach out to the facilitator, Jess Lewis at jlewis@museumofdesign.org if you have questions or accessibility needs.
