How to be a handmade hero: The Craftivist Jigsaw Project

Can one tiny stitch change the world? Join me and the rest of the craft community in the Craftivist Jigsaw Project, and find out how you can use your crafty kung fu to be a world changer. Go on.

Since I picked up a pair of knitting needles in 2005 I’ve been using my crafty kung fu for all kinds of good causes. I’ve pulled my ‘wanna be stitching superhero’ hat firmly down on my head and tried my best to change the world for the better. And I am about to step forward and speak up in a big way as a proud part of an exciting new venture in world-changing: The Craftivist Jigsaw Project. You’re coming with me!

We want each of you crafty critters to help us make a giant jigsaw, adding your voice to all of ours and asking for a better world for people who don’t have as grand a start as we do.

Your jigsaw piece will form an art installation handmade by hopefully hundreds of you, which we’ll use to persuade the people making all those giant world decisions that this is something we care about.
