Interest in my Thread of Life project is certainly gathering pace, although I still have a long way to go with my crowd funding campaign.
This week I’ve been invited to BBC Radio Sheffield to talk about the project, and hopefully that will lead to more donations and more participants.
To help along the way, I’ve added new “perks”, including a hand drawn, signed and framed version of the DNA pattern, and a chance to meet me at my city centre studio in Sheffield. Please take a look at the campaign to find out more, and I would be extremely grateful if you could share the link with others who may be interested.
I’ve also started work on my own, large scale cross-stitch piece, which will be just over a meter squared. The size is dictated by the cross-stitch fabric available to buy, and this is the biggest I can find. However, because I only have roughly a year to make it, this may yet prove to be too big! I’ve always felt that this might be a race to be finished in time, which makes the project so exciting and ambitious.
Here’s a look at the perk in return for a £100 donation, it’s a framed original piece of cross-stitch work.
