Stitch & Resist

Stitch & Resist is a craftivism project that helps us stay well, stay connected and stay engaged with the causes we care about.

Stitch & Resist was originally designed to encourage community groups and organisations to host craftivism workshops that would address specific issues. However, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, it has now envolved into an online project connecting groups in a time of turmoil.


The Stitch & Resist website was designed to be a hub for the whole project.

The website housed a gallery of submissions, free-to-use patterns, and an archive of resources for those new to the project or new to cross-stitching.

Participants were able to submit their piece using a quick and easy form. It was optimised and tested to enable participants to submit through their phones and remove as many hurdles as possible.
