Heres a letter i just received from PETA!

We need your help with a crafty new project! Do you (or a friend or family member) like to make quilts, sew, or paint? Were creating a quilt in honor of the billions of sea animals who are violently killed for their flesh and the millions more who are killed and injured by recreational anglers. By creating a patch for the Fish Quilt, you can let people know that fish are intelligent individuals who suffer and feel pain, just like cats and dogs dofish dont deserve to be hooked or eaten! (Learn more about sea animals at FishingHurts.com.)

You dont have to be a sewing expert to participate! We just need you to use your individual creativity to convey a message of compassion. Your square should represent why you care about fish or other sea animals. It could have an image of fish, a message like Fish Are Friends, Not Food, the story of why you stopped fishing or eating fish, or a tribute to a companion fish. The possibilities are endless!

Fish Quilt Instructions

You can use paints, dyes, permanent markers, stencils, or iron-on transfers of photographs as well as beads, sequins, or any other small object that would fit. It would be great if you incorporated old fishing hooks and gear to make a statement against fishing! Please choose durable fabric (no paper) and materials. We cant accept any patch that uses materials from animals (such as leather, wool, silk, or fur). All patches that follow the guidelines will be accepted regardless of artistic ability!
Each square must be constructed on a fabric backing and must be 18" x 18", or in multiples of 18" (so if youre really ambitious, you could make a patch thats 18" x 36" or 36" x 36"). You can also submit multiple quilt pieces. Please leave a half-inch seam allowance on all edges for us to use when assembling the final quilt.
Please send us your finished patches by July 15, 2006. Everyone who makes a useable patch will be thanked on FishingHurts.com. (Of course, if youd prefer that we not put your name on the Web site, please just let us know.) If possible, please take a nice photograph of you holding your quilt square and either include it in the package or e-mail it to us at FishQuilt@peta.org.

Please send your finished patch(es)along with your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and the background story about your patchto:

Fish Quilt Project
501 Front St.
Norfolk VA 23510

If you have questions about the project, please email FishQuilt@peta.org. Please forward this e-mail to anyone you know who is artistic and cares about animals.

Thank you very much for your using your talents to speak out for animals!
