Quilt Workshop June 29, 2010

Dozens of unique creations emerged from last Saturday’s QUILT WORKSHOP in San Agustin, Etla. More than 30 women from different backgrounds united on that day to create one or more squares of a collaborative quilt that will represent the participants’ voices and those of all humanity. Each woman cut, sewed, and embroidered her personal interpretation of the corn issue, expressing her concern not only for her family and community, but also for the entire planet and all of us who inhabit it.

The gathering was a dynamic one with scraps of cloth and bits of conversation flying through the air. Some participants finished various squares while others continue to work diligently on the first, but all of hope to continue sewing and visiting next Saturday in Santo Tomas Jalietza pueblo. You are cordially invited.
