Heritage Quilters Featured in Hometown Strong and Hello NC Profile

“Warrenton, NC is the seat of Warren County and at the 2010 census had a population of 862. The Hometown Strong and Hello NC team visited a few weeks ago to learn more about this town, its quilters, and the patchwork of rich history that defines its community.

We were traveling to speak with the Heritage Quilters, and to learn about their craft. In 2015, a folklife project grant was awarded to Warrenton Library to fund “Stitching Life Stories,” a quilting and life-narrative community project run by the Heritage Quilters of Warren County.” – Karl Galloway, Hometown Strong/Hello NC

Official Statement For These Times

We, the Heritage Quilters, are a community of women and men from Warren and Vance County, North Carolina. In addition to quilting, we are teachers, community leaders and organizers, medical staff, poets, healers, pastors, artists, organizers, engineers, mental health care workers, and writers. We are mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

In these times of uncertainty and crises, we need to look inward and reflect on our values and contributions to humanity, and particularly valuing the lives of Black and Brown people.

The arts are especially important as a form of creative expression and healing. For a thriving and healthy community, the Heritage Quilters encourage voting, completing the census, addressing food insecurity, and promoting dialogue.

VIDEO: Faith Ringgold: Quilting As An Art Form

We decided to kick-off National Quilting Month with one of our favorite quilters, FAITH RINGGOLD

Faith Ringgold (October 8, 1930 – New York City) is a painter, writer, activist, mixed media sculptor and performance artist, best known for her narrative quilts. Ringgold’s artistic practice is extremely broad and diverse, and includes media from painting to quilts, from sculptures and performance art to children’s books. As an educator, she taught in the New York City Public school system and at the college level. In 1973, she quit teaching public school to devote herself to creating art full-time.
