Stitch for Senate Blog... New!


This is the first post on the NEW Stitch for Senate blog

I have decided to blog documentation of the Stitch for Senate project as it progresses. Occassionally I get an email me asking if we still need knitters and I always answer YES! It will be finished when we have one hundred helmets. I am hoping this will keep people posted on the current aspects of the project, though I must forewarn I will be in South America from tomorrow April 13 - May 5, researching radical and artisan craft practices in Argentina and Peru. However, the Stitch for Senate PO Box will still accept mail and I will check email as much as possible to answer any questions. This blog will also document related wartime creative resistance, as well as things I collect about the history of wartime knitting. Above is a recent picture of the stack of helmets. After being labeled, the helmets are stored safely in a fiber box in my studio. Thanks to all who have participated.

I don't think I ever posted the interview I did with Regine Debatty of We Make Money Not Art (one of my most fav blogs!!) which kind of sums up the chronology of microrevolt projects and Stitch for Senate too...
