Hip Stitch In the Community

Giving back is at the core of the Hip Stitch mission. We think it exemplifies the spirit of quilting, which is the true "Spirit of the West".

It's that "Spirit of the West" where one helps raise the barn or school in their town, participates in the regional cattle round-up, harvests the apples or honey at the apple bee or the honey bee, and yes, makes the quilt at the quilting bee. These things are done not because they directly benefit the person doing them, but because they bind together a community, and because "paying it forward" makes the world a better place.

We, like many, feel helpless at times about how to stop injustice.

We wanted to share what our customer Rachael reached out to us:

Does your business believe Black Lives Matter? I am Indigenous, Pueblo and Apache, and my traditional values of love and respect mean Black relatives should not live in fear of being shot to death by police. More than ever, I feel called to direct my dollars to those who do not want Black people, Indigenous people, undocumented people, and those with mental illnesses violently handled by any kind of law enforcement. Thank you.

We met with Rachael and her husband this week.  They both grew up on the Laguna Pueblo, and have been working for social justice for much of their lives.  They are kind, honest, sincere, and inspiring. 

She shared with us some links to articles on Black quilters, designers and sewists.

We thought we’d share them with you. Let’s all take some time to learn, to read, to celebrate the accomplishments of others, and to continue, as always, to listen.
