HERstory Stitch Circle: Stitch n’ Learn in the Galleries

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Northwest Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Learn to embroider with MODA this Saturday the 23rd between 1pm and 4pm

As we learn the ins and outs of designing, patterning, and embroidering, we’ll also be lending our stories to an upcoming global community craftivist project called Badass HERstory, in which woman-identifying and gender non-binary participants from all over the world embroider their stories on 12inx12in squares of fabric. 

The squares stitched in the galleries on Saturday will first be added to the HERstory exhibit activation at the Museum of Design Atlanta during its summer exhibition Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism.

We’ll have all the materials necessary to stitch your story, but feel free to bring your own fabric or embroidery floss if you have anything extra-special with which you want to stitch.

You can sign up for any one of three time slots. We’ll have facilitators to help you with learning embroidery at each time slot. Just click the one you want to join below.

Fee is $10, which is the cost of adult admission to the museum and includes admission to the Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism exhibition.

Please register for a time slot below!

About Craftivism

Craftivism is a worldwide movement that operates at the intersection of craft and activism. Across the globe, artists and crafters armed with traditional materials like yarn, glue guns, quilt patterns, sewing needles, X-ACTO knives, and other tools are using their hands to protest social and political inequalities and injustices.

The time spent on these works shows the dedication to creating pieces that evoke emotion and promote discussion. By sharing ideas expressed through the work of their hands, these artists and crafters aim to make you think, explore and take note.
