Knitters make hats and donate them with a note about the issues that concern them most. Some knitters created four or five hats. Hundreds of people have come into the store to pick up hats for the March in Boston. People offered to buy the hats, but they weren’t for sale.
“This is craft activism, “ said co-owner Genevieve Day. “We embraced the project early and fully committed to it.”
Friday's stitch night brought more than 20 crafters to the Hyde Square store. JP Knit & Stitch recently opened a second location at Boston Public Market.
Day is bringing any extra hats to Saturday's March on Boston Common.
