Event description

Description

Cross stitching was an original form of resistance.

In 1912, suffragettes cross-stitched their signatures onto handkerchiefs when they were imprisoned for demanding their right to vote.

Fast forward over 100 years to Shannon Downey, craftivist, community builder, and general instigator behind Badass Cross Stitch, who's inspiring others to take action, think, discuss, engage with democracy and their community.

Shannon's latest project is Badass HERstory, a massive global craftivism project meant to capture and share the stories of as many women, female-identified, and gender non-binary humans as possible - told by the person who knows your story best – YOU.

Join us for a night of "Handmade Social Change." We'll have a short fireside chat with Shannon on how she became inspired, a history of the cross stitch movement, learn how to stitch together while enjoying sips and snacks, and add Indianapolis' story to the BadassHERstory community.

Inspire. Enable. Encourage. Push Boundaries. Change Sh*t.
