Some London Craftivists got together last Wednesday (15th June) evening at the Royal Festival Hall cafe in the Southbank Centre to work on our summer craftivism project Don’t Blow It. Around 15 craftivists started stitching their personal messages for their local politicans on handkerchiefs. We had handkerchiefs from ebay, some donated (thanks Mr X Stitch!) and some people even made their own from reclaimed fabric (go Hannah!).

All messages where unique because every had different opinions of their MPs- some wanted to push their MPs into committing to be of a voice for their vulnerable constituents they were ignoring and other craftivist wanted to use their online pharmacy no prescription hanky to encourage their MP to keep up the good work they are doing to push for a more fair society in the UK and abroad.

We felt honoured to have the wonderful Mr X Stitch join us that evening. Mr X Stitch is at the forefront of the contemporary embroidery revival – his websiteand podcast showcase the latest stitched arts and inject a healthy dose of fun into the whole process. Mr X Stitch (Jamie) has been a supporter of ours for a few years now and had taken part in many of our projects including And Sew To Bed. Check out this video of him in the post
