“Threads of Resistance” Unites Crafters Against Trump

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 7:03
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Protests are getting weird, what with the p-word hats and rioting and Ashley Judd shouting words in random order. Now, we have Threads of Resistance.

Here’s what they call themselves:

The Artist Circle presents “Threads of Resistance,” a juried exhibition of work created to protest the Trump administration’s actions and policies.

We invite you to consider the theme “Threads of Resistance,” and create work – fiber art, art quilts, modern quilts or traditional quilts – to convey your passion, anger, or sadness about an issue that concerns you. Your work can be either positive (encouraging and unifying), or negative (portraying anger, sadness or discouragement).

Suggested themes include “fake news and lies” and “attack on science.”

I moseyed on over to Instagram to see how it was going.  Ready to be inspired?

There’s this thing, that looks kind of like a grilled cheese on a picnic blanket.

What’s a crafter to do when confronted with multiple protest quilts? You heard me. Multiple. Protest. Quilts.

Really, with the caption?

My eyes find inspiration in this photo #threadsofresistance

As with the P-y hats, cat ladies are represented.

Here are some words. Feel the power!
