Sew Queer: Stitching Love

Sew Queer is a project exploring the intersections of sewing and queer identity. To participate, use the hashtag #sewqueer or visit @sewqueer on instagram.

One of the things that draws me to sewing is the sense of connection: to a long historical lineage of stitchers of all kinds, to a body of knowledge passed down formally and informally, to my mother and my grandmothers, and to the people I’ve been meeting, face to face and online, who share the hobby. 1,346 more words
