This big suitcase I got off ebay is where I put all of our fabric supplies. We are running low on supplies and need your help please to fill our suitcase back up with pretty cotton fabric we can use (20cm x15cm is the smallest size we can use). Can you or someone you know help? Do you have fabric hidden away that you are not using? Old patterned shirts we could use & even turn the sleeves into craftivism kits?

 

I’m hyper-conscious of the mark the Craftivist Collective make on this planet. I worry about the fact that we are putting more ‘stuff’ out in the world & I hope it won’t end in a landfill. That’s why I’m always keen to upcycle unwanted fabric as much as possible, use donated needles & thread where possible, & use the most eco & ethical suppliers we can find for the other elements such as our paper instruction sheet, kit packaging, postcards & stickers (all using recycled paper, made in the UK & suppliers who pay a living wage to their employees).

  

Some of the suitcase is packed with 20cm strips of fabric I’ve spotted in shops (we are on a budget so can’t buy by the metre, sorry shopkeepers!) I thought they would be perfect for our mini protest banners or bespoke projects for charities & organisations we work with because of their colours, patterns, or objects on the fabric that help convey the message we are trying to put across (e.g objects from nature to encourage us to love the environment, superhero icons to encourage us to be the change we wish to see in the world rather than relying on a superhero, pretty patterns in hopeful colours like yellow that just make our craftivism pieces too pretty to ignore). But the suitcase is mainly filled with donated pieces to help us create ethical sustainable kits. Some donations come with such lovely heartfelt letters from people who are no longer able to use the fabric whether that’s for health reasons or lack of time. Some come from resource centres who hold back their small patches for us. Some are from people who have samples they’ve ordered and no longer need .

 

What we need:

Thin cotton fabric with small patterns on (20cm x 15cm minimum size)

Embroidery needles size 6 (or around that size- not too small)

Embroidery thread/floss black

Bobbin thread cards

eyelets size 5mm diameter

Scissors

One of the really interesting experiences about touring in a D.I.Y. band is getting to stay in people's houses. While this can sometimes be an akward or discouraging experience, it can also be a really empowering experience to see the ways in which people live together.

 

The house we stayed at in the Mission neighborhood in San Francisco seemed like they had some amazing stuff, like this deck and treehouse extension from which you could see across the city. It also had all these little systems that seemed integrated into the life of the house rather than being intrusive. For instance, they had a checklist for collective grocery shopping and a bulletin board documenting the progress of various house tasks.

 

I liked this particular system because I'm always searching for a good place to put random recyclables at my apartment.
