Taking radical action is nurtured by quilting. Quilts are tender, fierce, and reliable. They are provocative and reparative. Quilts hold people and stories. As they conform to the unique shape of a body beneath their cascading surface, they affirm the vitality of love and safety. Throughout history, communities have turned to the collective intimacies of quilting in moments of need. This zine tells those stories.

Established in 2019 by Laura Moseley (she/they), Common Threads Press is a small press that specializes in radical histories of crafts and making. Based in Norwich, England, they publish zines, deliver workshops, and curate events that uplift the work of women, queer folk and POC through the histories of their creative work. Common Threads publications are written collaboratively with early-career researchers, students and academics from all around the world, who share a love and interest in craft histories.
