The Craftivist Collective Wants to Change the World, One Stitch at a Time

For as long as she can remember, Sarah Corbett has been fighting for social justice. Growing up in an activist family, she experienced firsthand how energy-intensive, frustrating, and ineffective conventional campaigning and protesting can be. In her search to engage the public more respectfully, she founded the Craftivist Collective to channel the meditative crafts of embroidery and cross-stitch into vehicles for change. What started out with a few miniature protest banners, earnestly rendered with messages such as “Now’s the time to act for justice” and “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” has since exploded into a global movement more than 1,000 members strong. It’s easy to “pick up the thread,” as Corbett describes it. Would-be “craftivists” can even purchase ready-to-stitch kits at the group’s online store. Ecouterre caught up with Corbett to learn about this new form of “gentle protest,” how crafting can lead to a more mindful approach to activism, and the role craftivism can play in promoting a more ethical fashion industry.
