A really great guest post by Mily on Shonna Slayton’s blog all about us! Go have a read and check out her amazing blood bag design!!

It’s here!!! And it is BEAUTIFUL!

Craftivism: The Art of Craft and Activism has arrived in the UK and features The Blood Bag Project! It is such an honour to be in Betsy’s book, amongst such other great textile artists and craftivist project.

I can not thank Betsy enough for including the project and I am so proud that it has come this far! How exciting!!

I went along to Artists Anonymous yesterday evening and did a small talk on what I do as a textile artist. I spoke about The Blood Bag Project and took a few examples along with me!
