Makes to celebrate Pride

Every year during the month of June the LGBTQ+ community come together to celebrate Pride  – a community-wide, global celebration of diversity, acceptance and the rich history of LGBTQ+ people; and a time to raise political awareness of current issues facing the community. 

The month of June normally sees a jam-packed calendar of Pride events taking place all over the world to celebrate and recognize the LGBTQ+ community and remember those who fought for equal rights. 

The best way we know to celebrate is to make, and we’ve got hundreds patterns that honour the LGBTQ+ community’s brilliantly bright rainbow flag! We’ve pulled together a collection of our favourite rainbows that fit the bill, whatever your craft of choice.
