Abstract: "Making Queer Love" pays homage to the work of queer feminist crafters and artists, some of whom are well-known in contemporary art worlds and some of whom are amateurs, by sending them a kit for making an embroidered sampler of queer words and phrases. "A Kit of Odds and Ends," composed of an assortment of thrift store craft materials and accompanied by a love letter in the form of a zine, is a gift from one queer feminist to another, a token of solidarity and appreciation.
