Stitch-a-thon for White Ribbon
A 14-hour stitch-a-thon on International Women’s Day 2014 attracted hundreds of women, men and children.
Over 100 metres of white ribbon was stitched to support the work of White Ribbon, the world’s largest male-led movement to end men’s violence against women. The stitchers joined representatives of the White Ribbon movement and Hunter Zonta Club to celebrate the end of the stitch-a-thon. The stitched white ribbon was later used to hang ‘Hope’ embroidered flags, in the Talking Needles exhibition, on May 11 2014- a collaborative project of embroiderers in India and in Newcastle
