Don’t Read the Comments, Sew Them!
September 17, 2016
The comments are tough to deal with. They are messy and more often than not they just make no sense. Even for journalists who are invested in engaging with their readers, the vitriol can be demoralizing.
So stop reading them and start sewing them in an ONA sewing circle.
Join Hannah Wise, Dallas Morning News breaking news political reporter and the creator of @SewManyComments, to learn how to embroider your favorite comments.
Take a break from the screens, come make new friends and learn a cool craft to take home to your newsroom. Trust us, embroidery is a great conversation starter.
Worried about coming up with a comment to start? Hannah will have a selection of pre-designed patterns to choose from as well.
Can’t sew? Not to worry. Embroidery is easier than it sounds and this Uncon sewing circle will be a judgement-free crafting space.
Come make something beautiful out of the digital nonsense.
