Artist's Statement: The Pussyhat Project, conceived of by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman, was launched to make pink hats as a unifying symbol at the 2017 Women's March. Gatherings took place all over the country to make pussyhats. For centuries, knitting and quilting bees have been safe places for support, sharing of ideas and even political activism. Made at a weekend retreat, inspiration came from many women including fellow quilters, fabric designers, knitters, crocheters and marchers.
