Fine Cell Work

Fine Cell Work

I came across this article over at MrXStitch and thought I'd share it here.

"Fine Cell Work is a Registered Charity that teaches needlework to prison inmates and sells their products. The prisoners do the work when they are locked in their cells, and the earnings give them hope, skills and independence.

Savings reduce the likelihood of offenders returning to crime. Prisoners often send the money they earn from Fine Cell Work to their children and families, or use it to pay debts or for accommodation upon release."

The work is pretty amazing, click on the links above to see more.

Emory and the Black Panthers

I love the Black Panthers as much as the next person so I was really happy to see this upcoming exhibition of Emory's work at the New Museum in NYC.

Support Sublime Stitching

Support Sublime Stitching

I don't play three card monte and I don't usually get conned.

It has come to my attention that Urban Threads has been blatantly copying the designs of and text from Sublime Stitching and posing as an independent single entrepreneur based company when it is really part of a larger corporate entity. Therefore i deactivated that account here on glimmer.

You can read the thread concerning this with Jenny Hart's letter and see for yourself how the designs are mysteriously similar.

Jenny Hart and her work is a cornerstone of the alt craft community. She has been an editor and contributor here for many years.

Crafty in the Capital

Crafty in the Capital

I'm thrilled to be attending the Summit of Awesome in Washington, D.C., May 1-3. Organized by Hello Craft, this weekend conference looks to be the ultimate educational and networking opportunity for makers, craft fair organizers, and business owners. The schedule is dreamy; I can't wait to learn embroidery from fellow editor Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching, and to hear a panel discussion on green crafting. Tickets are still available for $180 -- if you want to propel your craft forward and bond with others who are hot for handmade, it's well worth it. I'll be screening the Re-Construct trailer at 6:15 and 8:30 p.m. on May 1, right before Faythe Levine's Handmade Nation documentary, at the Jewish Community Center.

The Organic Industry

The Organic Industry

Take a look at these terrific info graphics on the consolidation of the organic food industry by Philip Howard. I had seen some of these before but all in one place it is impressive. Buy local. Thanks Figwit.
