I was originally inspired to make this design because I wanted something that would mark my membership in the LGBTQIA community and in the fiber community. I also wanted this design to be something that could mark welcoming fiber spaces - as a sticker on the door of a welcoming yarn shop or on the project bag of a maker who is either part of the community or welcoming to all.
I added just a little sparkle to the yarn in the middle because, as a wise drag queen once told me, "Girl, there's no such thing as too much glitter."
This design is different from the original yarn/pride design. I’ve updated the name not only to denote the year it was remade, but also the clearer vision of the piece and hopefully our fiber community. I updated the design because I believe that there’s no pride for some of us without it being pride for ALL of us. While the six color rainbow pride flag is iconic, it’s not inclusive. And I don’t want to be part of pride that doesn’t include everyone.
