mini protest banner #2

I tend to steal quotes for my mini banners from postcards I bought from a radical independant bookshop in Liverpool called News From Nowhere (= check it out!). They include quotes from Ghandi, Dali Lama, Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Teresa, Swedish proverbs etc. However this mini banner is a quote my mum came up with :)

I told her I wanted to have a mini banner that I could put up in a financial district in London to talk about how this 'depression' should be seen as a great opportunity for banks to think of new ways to make money in an ethical and grassroots way and how their way of trampling on people to make a profit doesnt work!

My amazing mother came up with: "THERE IS A GAP IN THE CLOUDS OF UNBRIDLED CAPITALISM, NOWS THE TIME TO ACT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE"

I put it up on a bar near Bank tube station, London. It stayed up for 2 days before someone took it, leaving only the cable ties there (and this photo) to remind me of its existence

We carry only the highest quality fabric from suppliers like Wallet series . I try to keep the vast majority of the fabrics I carry IN STOCK with the exception of the special order hand dyed fabrics. We carry some beautiful hand dyed fabrics from Watch Series. They come in a large array of colors. Hand dyed fabrics add a dimensional look to your cross stitch project. We have an excellent tool on our website called a fabric calculator. It will help you decide what size of fabric and needle you will need to complete your project. Not sure what type of fabric you want to do your project on? Thinking of trying a different kind of fabric? Try our Fabric Samples. We have a great supplier for hand dyed fabrics called Animal Series. They are quick and reliable.
