14 Sep Craft Crush #9 Rayna Fahey of Radical Cross Stitch
As the Craftivist Collective we love to showcase fellow craft-lovers who inspire us to keep crafting, teach us new craft skills & new ways of thinking and challenge us in how craft can be done, seen & have a positive mark on the world. These people keep me and the Craftivist Collective moving forward and growing and basically I have a big Craft Crush on them for that reason & want to celebrate their crafty brilliance with you so you can be inspired by them too.
Craft Crush #9 is…. Rayna Fahey!

What do you do? Seriously Subversive Stitching
What are your first memories of crafting? Other than sticky gluey projects my first real connection to the process that I’m now besotted with was a weaving project at school, aged about 10. There was something hypnotizing about slowly working an image into reality, line by line.
What inspires you? My ancestors. Ancestors of craft, design and politics. And all the incredible people out there working in their grassroots communities to make the world a better place.
