…Public embroidery makes vandalism cute?

Public Embroidery

Public Embroidery is vandalism that everyone can agree on. Small cross-stitched figures and words are left on the seats of buses and trains, and probably brighten the day of whoever happens to come across that seat, even if only a little bit. Just make sure to give Boston a heads up that this might be coming stateside.
