Come join us at Saturn in Avondale to make signs for the Women's March on Washington - whether you're going to DC, the rally in Birmingham, or if you just want to contribute your artistic skills to the cause!
We will have some supplies provided, but please feel free to bring your own supplies to work on your sign, supplies to share, slogan ideas, etc.
For those going to DC - DC agencies do not allow signs to be on anything that can be weaponized, so you can't use metal/wooden/PVC etc rods to attach your sign to. Basically, if you can hit someone over the head with it and injure them with anything other than a paper cut, its not allowed.
For those of you who are working on the Pussycat Hat project, feel free to use this as a knitting get together session as well!
Saturn is being very gracious by letting us use their space for this cause, so please make sure to purchase some of their wonderful coffee and pastries or an adult beverage of your choice while you are there.
