Bardamos without Borders

From our friend Shauna,

Bordamos Without Borders
Part embroidery lesson, part show of solidarity!

We’ll be stitching messages of safety and encouragement onto care packages for Latin American migrants riding the cargo trains through Mexico in search of a better life.

This embroidery bee is inspired by contemporary justice embroidery movements in Mexico as well as the daunting stories of Central American migrants riding  “La Bestia” (the train rails crossing Mexico to the US).   Donations happily accepted to purchase supplies to pack into the care packages.

No experience or materials required, just show up and we’ll show you how!  Basic lesson every hour on the hour.
Stitchers unite at the Exchange Community Church   75 Albert St.  (2nd floor – stair access only)
1-9pm Friday, Sept. 25
1-9pm Saturday, Sept. 26
