Psst! Do you want to know a secret? First, you’ll have to tell us yours!
According to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the average person keeps a whopping 13 secrets and it is typical for people to have five secrets that they have never told to another living soul.
That’s a lot of secrets, and everyone knows that keeping things in is bad for us, so how do you find a safe and therapeutic way to let it go?
Well, you can sing about it, talk about it, write a letter and freeze it, write a poem and burn it, or shout your secret to the wind and let it carry your words off scattered in the breeze. Or you can give it to us: stitch your secret and send it to us for safe keeping. Trivial, funny or deadly serious, it matters not.
Letting a secret go in a safe place allows you to forgive yourself and let the past go. Sharing a secret is an act of self-love.
We are the Profanity Embroidery Group of Whitstable, and you are invited to stitch your secret (profanity free) and make it part of an American style crazy quilt for entry to the Festival of Quilts in 2018. Stitch a secret onto fabric no bigger than a sheet of A4 paper and send it to us. The deadline is December 31 2017. We will turn it into a work of art.
The process is anonymous and anyone can contribute. Find out everything you need to know at our website!
