Stitchable Change-Maker


Complete these stitchable dot-to-dot cards as a group or on your own. As the face of your chosen change-maker is revealed, reflect on the values threaded through them and their lives. This mindful stitching also creates a space to connect to your own values that thread through your own daily thoughts, actions and choices.


Connect the dots with needle and thread to reveal a portrait of an inspiring change maker. A quote is also included from each of them to reflect on whilst stitching. On the back there is also some information about their background.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it” Abraham Lincoln

“My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together” Desmond Tutu

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts” Eleanor Roosevelt

The Craftivist Collective was started in 2009 by Sarah Corbett, an award-winning campaigner with 30 years’ practical experience as an activist. At that time Craftivism was a relatively new concept (the term was coined by American writer and crafter Betsy Greer) Since then, Sarah has been developing her own unique ‘Gentle Protest’ approach to craftivism, and has gained a following of friends and strangers around the world who want to also get involved in this strategic, thoughtful and effective approach to making change "one stitch at a time".

Material Information
