Eligibility:

A Commune-Knit-y participation project where crafters and artists of all backgrounds are invited to participate in a mass Sew-in, from June 9-November elections, to help heal our democracy, by creating small works that can be exhibitredd on-line, in reality, published, etc. The idea is to reflect upon the Troicateuse, or French workers who knitted at the base of the guillotine while heads were chopped off in the regime change that was the French revolution. We will knit, crochet, embroider, applique, etc. as the January 6 Insuurectionist hearings are televised and broadcast. "They Reap, While We Sew" is a means to encourage participation in the democratic process, by voting in November. It celebrates free speech and civil exchanges through art.
