If you have a social media account — you’ve likely come across at least one of her many cross stitch works that have gone viral.
Meet Shannon Downey, craftivist, community builder, and founder of Badass Cross Stitch, who inspires others to take action, think, discuss, engage with democracy and their community.
Shannon’s latest project is Badass HERstory, a massive global craftivism project meant to capture and share the stories of as many women, female-identified, and gender non-binary humans as possible – told by the person who knows your story best – YOU.
Join her for a night of “Handmade Social Change.” There will be a short fireside chat with Shannon on how she inspired, a history of the cross stitch movement. Grab your friends and get ready for an evening of conversations that will inspire you to help change shit. You will be encouraged and learn how to stitch with like-minded people while enjoying sips and snacks.
