Vote 2016

I'm loving the colors and stitches Michelle used on her version of the free Vote pattern! You can still get the free Vote pattern here - if you've stitched it up, we'd love to see it! Tag us on Instagram or send us a pic!

Here are a few inspiring photos for today's very historical vote in the US, as a reminder that voting is a right and privilege we have not always enjoyed...

This wonderful post on Selvedge talks about Prison Embroidery by Suffragettes, 1905 – 1914.

A medal from the Birmingham Museum's collection, commemorating British Suffragette Nellie Hall’s hunger strike, 1913.

This post on The Women's Rights Movement in the US provides a nice history, and some background on that photo above.

I love this one. :)

I know we're not all ladies reading this blog, but if you're out there voting today, we're all with you! :)
