microRevolt projects investigate the dawn of sweatshops in early industrial capitalism to inform the current crisis of global expansion and the feminization of labor. It was founded in 2003 by knit hobbyist Cat Mazza. knitPro is a a protest tool and program that translates digital images into knit, needlepoint, x-stitch, and crochet patterns. microRevolt uses knitPro to make “logoknits” — knitted garments with the logos of sweatshop offenders. microRevolt is accepting submissions for the KnitPro Needlecraft Art Show, an exhibit of needlecraft used from knitPro patterns.
