Suzie Warren, a craftivist who decided that instead of raging about the state of the world, she would ‘do what she could’. And what she does is to make, witty, beautiful and ‘polite’, very English acts of protest.
'Stitch it don't ditch it' has grown into a global movement protesting against the environmental damage the fashion industry causes, creating connection, community, awareness and teaching people new skills.
You can join crafivists across the globe during Sustainable Fashion Week by stitching on your street at 12.30pm on Tuesday 14th September. Details at streetstiching.com
To get your hands on some beautifully bonkers gifts for your friends and family go to twistedtwee.co.uk and you can find Suzi on Instagram at @twistedtwee and at @streetstiching
I'd love to hear your response to this conversation over on Instagram where I'm @kate_codrington and don't forget to have a look at my website where you'll find a wealth of free resources.
You will find the podcast on Spotify, iTunes and all major platforms, just search for 'Life - An Inside Job'.
If you enjoyed the episode yourself, then it would be fab if you shared it with a friend or with your community on social media.
