    Description"Craftivism" is a term coined by Betsy Greer, referring to the raising of social consciousness through craft. At the forefront of this movement is the Craftivist Collective. Their mini cross-stitched banners and tiny urban installations touch upon issues of environmentalism, corporate greed and gender equality in a warm and humorous way, encouraging people to reflect upon these subjects in their own space and time. Through the process of crafting (usually in public places), the craftivists contemplate the issue that they are raising, and also introduce it to members of the public, who inevitably ask what they are doing. The final product is thought-provoking without feeling intrusive or overwhelming. Sarah Corbett set up the Craftivist Collective website in 2009; today it enjoys a worldwide following, with over 8,000 unique hits per month. Craftivist followers in New York, Los Angeles and Berlin have taken inspiration from the website and photographed their work in prominent places. In this little volume, Corbett introduces some of the ideas behind craftivism alongside how-to instructions for a selection of craftivist projects and hints and tips for beginners.
