The PoP Peep Project: “We the Peeple: 2017 Women’s March”

We the Peeple

“Diorama by Melissa Werner
Hats Knitted by Lila Guterman, Jennifer McClory, Rebecca McCoyer, Kelsey Boler Norton, and Melissa Werner

This recreation of the 2017 Women’d March combines two of my current favorite pastimes–arts and crafts and anti-Trump activism. I made a bunch of pink “pussyhats” for the real march, and had a lot of fun making miniature versions and engaging other like-minded knitters to contribute. The banner is a recreation of a much larger one that my twin boys and a bunch of their friends from school carried.”

All entries should be emailed to [email protected] with ‘The PoP Peep Project’ in the subject line. Please include a brief description about your entry and please include 2 photos, one closeup and one capturing the whole scene. Entries should be based on local topics of interest if possible and sent by the end of April. Depending on how many I receive, I’ll post all as I get them. I will then pick 5-10 finalists that you guys will vote on. I will take the winners out to dinner (courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant) and drinks (unless the high school kids win, then just dinner.) I will also bury the winners (and 2nd and 3rd place) in PoPville t-shirts. Good luck!!

Closeups after the jump.
