the first draft of Sew, You Want to Embroider?, my #embroidery 101 #zine, is finished! now on to typing everything up! once finished, it'll have 20 pages, with tutorials for 16 basic stitches, plus some other resources, and examples of some of my finished projects
all in all, it will be available for 1 USD for the PDF, or I can print and mail it to you for 3 USD, plus shipping over 1 USD (ie if shipping is 1.15 USD your total would be 3.15 USD)

hi cis friends! (if you’re reading this while not being trans, that’s you!!) the dk64 stream is over but you can still replicate the experience!!! here’s how:

1. look at #TransCrowdFund here or on birdsite until you find someone with an active gofundme/ko-fi/paypal/etc. (this part should take about five seconds)
2. open the nearest window and stick your head out
3. shout β€œTRANS RIGHTS” into the void as you smash that donate button

it’s easy and it feels great to do!

Serious recommendation: if you like solarpunk, look into AfroFuturism. It's been around -way- longer, and tbh, solarpunk was probably inspired by it.
