Where the words of strong women are immortalized, one stitch at a time
It all started with a pattern I designed for my amazing, wonderful, independent-minded daughter. (A girl should be two things: who and what she wants. ~Coco Chanel)
While I was stitching this pattern, I was intrigued by the idea of “spreading the word” by making it available to other mothers and daughters. My intelligent and entrepreneurial offspring was already selling her own designs on Etsy, so I decided to make it available in the same fashion.
Then I designed another, and another, and soon I was seeking out more inspirational and motivational messages that would make up a collection of patterns.
As I stitched the first patterns, an image began to take shape in my mind of older women, perhaps teachers or mothers and grandmothers, leading a group of younger women as they learned to stitch and at the same time were informed about the feminist movement – from the “first wave” of feminists in the late 1800s and early 20th century, to the “second wave” that emerged in the 1960s and 70s, to today’s icons and young leaders who carry on the work for gender equality.
It is my hope, that these patterns will be crafted in order to make a modest impact on those around us, allowing men and women alike to show “what a feminist looks like.”
