Abstract

Embroidery has been used by communities to testify to violence for many years but these experiences were often marginalised. A recent proliferation of international textile responses to such crises, however, and a visibilisation of textiles in general, have been enabled through social media. This contribution reflects on a Whatsapp conversation across space and time between friends, who have been participating in personal and collective embroidery projects. In this piece, we wish to reveal the role of conversation and its relationship to embroidery work, and how it sustains solidarity, as we question the politics and implications of our actions.
