Swindon Suffragette Shopping

We’ve got a few items left over from our Women’s Art and Craft Sale so thought we’d offer people the chance to buy online. Just email us if you would like to order something and you can send the money via PayPal friends and family option or bank transfer. If you’re local to Swindon we might even be able to deliver.

We have four A5 spiral notebooks, they have a glossy soft cover and 150 pages of 90gsm lined paper, in two designs. The first design is an altered image of Edith New’s WSPU portrait, it has a smashed glass effect as Edith New and Mary Leigh were the first suffragettes to smash windows as a form of protest, a tactic later adopted by the WSPU. The second design is an altered image taken from a photograph of Edith New on her release from Holloway for the aforementioned window smashing incident. £7 each (this includes second class postage).


We have a number of notecards, these are 14x11cm, blank inside and come with a white envelope. They feature three glossy images of Edith New. The same two as the notebooks above and an altered image taken from a newspaper photo of Edith New being arrested after chaining herself to railings outside Downing Street. The text reads ‘well-behaved women seldom make history’. Three cards, one of each design, £3.50 (this includes second class postage).


We have limited numbers of various designs of our small button badges, any three cost £3.50 (including second class postage) or buy three cards and three badges for £5 (including second class postage).


All items were exclusively designed and made for the Swindon Suffragette Festival Women’s Art and Craft Sale, in order to celebrate and remember Edith’s contribution. Money raised has gone towards supporting the free activities and events we organise.
