March is Women's History Month and as the great Hillary Rodham Clinton once said, "Women's Rights are Human Rights."

Shannon Downey (also known as Badass Cross Stitch) posted about her vision to build a national cohort of craftivists across the country by developing the country’s first craftivist-in-residence programs. She announced that the first will launch in the fall of 2021 at one of our favorite museums, Fuller Craft, in Brockton, Massachusetts. But to make this really come to life they are currently seeking funding. And that's where we come in. This February our We Care Wednesday initiative will be for the CIR program at Fuller Craft. We know that you all are just as passionate about craftivism as we...
