Hey craftivistas and all :)

Just a quick blog post to say please don’t forget to come and join us at the Royal Festival Hall cafe on the Southbank from 6:30pm to continue our summer project Don’t Blow It. The Facebook event is here. Some of us will be finishing off our hand embroidered handkerchiefs to give to our MPs whilst others will be starting them. We hope to have them finished by the time Summer Recess is over (6th September) so that we can give them to our local MPs on their first day back.

As always, we will have craft resources on hand but we encourage you to bring your own hanky etc if you can. We ask for a £3 donation to cover costs and will be drinking tea, eating cake and crafting whilst talking about how we are going to encourage our MP’s not to blow their chance of making a positive difference whilst they are in power. All are welcome! :)

Any questions email us on craftivist-collective [at] hotmail dot com, find us on Facebook or tweet us @craftivists

For all those non-Londoners please remember that you can do the project wherever you are in the world as an individual or a group. See the links above instructions video and Flickr examples for help. We have craftivists doing this project in Manchester, Glasgow and event Washington DC so there is no excuse for you not to make a handkerchief for your local politician and give it to them any time of year!;p

Sorry we haven’t promoted this earlier. We have been so busy with our Hayward Gallery workshop amongst other craftivism requests :s
