Three members of the Stitches for Survival organising group, Cathy Holman, Jane Lewis and Anne-Marte Bergseng talk about their Craftivism project coming together in the run up to COP 26. The idea (conceived in Jane's garden during lockdown in Portobello) is to create a mile and a half long scarf, made out of stitched and knitted panels.
“if we want our world to be a more beautiful, kind and fair place then shouldn’t our activism be more beautiful, kind and fair.”
Sarah Corbett, How to be a Craftivist
If you’d like to find out more about the project the facebook group is very lively and full of inspiring images of the panels. The project website is www.stitchesforsurvival.earth
