Violet Protest - Sign Up #6 - G Stacks

Sign up for Squares in Stacks G!

Hello! Sign up below for the number of squares you would like to make for the Violet Protest project. Once you sign up, you will receive a special packet via US mail with special tags and more details about how to prepare your squares. (That is why your mailing address is required.) 

We are looking for makers from across all 50 United States, Puerto Rico and American Territories (even Canada!) to make square textile units (8” x 8” in size) using any of the following techniques: knit, crochet, weave, sewn/pieced, quilted, embroidered, applique, felting, screen printed fabric - or combinations of techniques. The request is that all squares would be made using equal parts of red and blue, with makers free to combine prints and colors, textures, stitching and yarns as long as they make a square, that have an equal combination of red and blue so that in the final display will give the overall presentation of violet. In the act of making, makers will be compelled to contemplate other opinions symbolized by the red or blue components of their squares. So please, no direct imagery or text that supports or detracts from any specific social issue or policy. Our focus is on the core values that are noted in our letter to Congress. (You can read the full text of this letter at http://www.violetprotest.com/about.html)

THE DEADLINE FOR FINISHED SQUARES IS:
AUGUST 1, 2021 for packages sent to Congress

Your hand-made squares will be exhibited at the Phoenix Art Museum from March 10th - September 5th, 2021, and then will be sent in bundles to each of the 535 members of the 117th Congress.

Don't be shy, tell others about this project - the success of this project depends on spreading the word to involve makers from all 50 states!
