A letter of importance

I finished  my embroidery a while ago but today I sent it off to the Embroideries Campaign joining their fight against female genital mutilation. Textile crafting has traditionally been seen as a domestic and almost exclusively female hobby or pastime. That’s why I think it’s brilliant use embroidery to fight this horrible abuse on women. As I threw the letter down the mail box I truly felt that this was a letter of importance. Or to be precise, its content was.

This embroidery is about empowerment, about taking a stand and making a statement.

About using embroidery in a subversive way!

If you want to make your own embroidery of a vulva and join the campaign you send it here:

Take care
