Wonderful Wednesday 58: Bloom Threads

Wonderful Wednesday 58 - Bloom Threads, a Feeling Stitchy feature by floresita

I am so inspired by this wonderful piece by Jackie, or Bloom Threads, as she is known on Instagram. The right side of the piece was inspired by an 18th century print of the Women's March on Versailles. Jackie paired this with the more recent Women's March, and the two together speak so eloquently to me.

Jackie says of her piece:

"The long-and-short is this... Women revolutionaries have often been devalued. They have long been told that they are shrill, irrational, misguided, and petty when they are actually the very heart of the revolution. Keep pushing forward."

Jackie is auctioning her piece this week to benefit Moms Demand Action, an organization which advocates for common sense gun laws in the U.S. Jackie has also arranged a variety of pieces from other crafters and artists, each to support the organizations of their choice, be sure to stop by #deedsandactionsauction on Instagram and see all the other auction pieces as well.

Thank you Bloom Threads, you are inspiring!
