I can finally reveal the Top Secret stitching project I have been working on.
Today, on World Hunger Day, the Craftivist Collective are launching their latest project – the Craftivist Jigsaw Project #imapiece. To get the low down on the project, please hop on over to the Craftivist Collective and read the launch post. Or you could watch this video:
I made several pieces in advance of the launch (pictured above). But I also saved this one back to hang in my living room:
And this one to send to my MP:
The Craftivist Collective are asking people to make three pieces:
One of the pieces will go towards creating an art installation to raise awareness that we all have a role to play and show that the craft community wants the Government to use its power and influence as host of the 2013 G8 to tackle injustice.
The second piece is for you to keep as a reminder to be part of the solution, especially when we feel overwhelmed and helpless. We can all do our bit in so many ways – from buying local and reducing our carbon footprint, to raising awareness and talking to MPs about important issues like food price spikes and biofuels. Which leads on to the third puzzle piece, which you can stitch with the words “I’m a piece” and give to your MP to ask them to be the positive change they wish to see in the world.
I hope as many of my crafty blog friends in the UK will participate in this project. Let’s piece together to find solutions to World Hunger!
