Welcome Blanket Update

15th June 2018

In All Stitched Up! #123 (HERE) we shared Rosío Torres’ involvement with the Welcome Blanket Project.

The Welcome Blanket Project creates handmade blankets as a gift to welcome new refugees and immigrants to the USA in celebration of their arrival.

At the time the story was published, submissions for this worthy cause had closed, but we’ve just heard that they are embarking on a new stage of the project and are once again calling for us to Stitch It Forward!

The Welcome Blanket’s new project host will be MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta) and will form part of their ‘Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism’ exhibition from 3 Jun to 9 Sep 2018. Welcome Blanket are again looking for blanket donations, so if you’re up for some Stitching It Forward, more information can be found at their website HERE with submissions closing on 25 Aug 2018.
