A few thoughts on Really Cross Stitch: For when you just want to stab something a lot by Rayna Fahey

Really Cross Stitch: For when you just want to stab something a lotReally Cross Stitch: For when you just want to stab something a lot by Rayna Fahey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a call to action with many cross stitch patterns so you can stitch the revolution. It is an entertaining and engaging read which also includes space for a lot of anger at what is happening in local and global politics. This book is a useful addition to craftivism publishing.

a Storify of Shetland Wool Week 2017

I think of this as an impressive local studies event (which I have yet to go to). The photographs show locations, people and events. I hope that the Shetland Library is collecting from this and other events for their local studies collection.

The Great Strike, 1917 - centenary exhibition

This was a very impressive exhibition with huge banners hanging in very large spaces. The Great Strike, 1917 - centenary exhibition
 It is hard to give a good idea of how big these banners are. The Great Strike, 1917 - centenary exhibition There were some art works inspired by the original objects, but really the most powerful elements were the original objects, and perhaps was the key role of the art works, that they made you look at the original works with a different filter.

Atherton Library, Queensland

Atherton Library is a lovely looking library which seems to have had a recent refurbishment.

Atherton Library, Queensland
It was so popular, there were quite a few areas of it I was not able to photograph as they were in use.

It also had this listing of staff - and what you could ask them about.

 There was also a readers' advisory promotion about the website in the library.
