Stitch Your State
We are asking current volunteers to help us create a banner. This banner will be made up of 7” by 9” sections and incorporate design elements that are representative of your favorite state(s). The design possibilities are endless because they represent what your favorite state(s) means to you. It might be embroidering your state flower on your section or simply adding the state name. Ultimately we’d like to use this banner for social media, marketing campaigns, in ads and for display at consumers shows like Vogue Knitting Live and Stitches. We also plan to hang the banner in our Warm Up America! office!
It’s the perfect summer project too--small enough to slip into your handbag or to take to the beach. Imagine what design ideas a group of friends or guild might come up with. Interested? We hope you are!

SHARE YOUR SECTIONS
We love to see your WIPs, you can email photos of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org or post photos of your progress on Social Media using #stitchyourstate.
Every week we will share your photos on our Social Media!
We will select one design from each state to be represented on the banner. If your section is chosen for the banner a picture of your banner and description or your section will be posted on our SM pages. We will also stitch each of these state sections together and make a banner to display! If we are lucky enough to receive lots of sections some will be assembled into afghans and given to those in need and also promoted on social media.
