@Regrann from @p_ssyhatproject - From Pussyhat cofounder @jaynazweiman is a new craftivist project Welcome Blanket! Follow @welcomeblanket for more information #welcomeblanket ・・・
Welcome Blanket re-conceptualizes the 2000-mile distance of the proposed border wall between Mexico and the US into handmade blankets to symbolize inclusion instead of exclusion. Representing the distance of the wall in lengths of yarn, volunteers will create lap blankets and accompanying notes of welcome for new US immigrants. The products of this crowd-sourced effort will be collected and displayed at the @smartmuseum beginning July 2017, with an exhibition in September 2017. After the show, the blankets will be given to refugee resettlement organizations for distribution to immigrant families.
