We are deeply humbled and grateful for the steady flow of love and support from everyone who attended our STAY WOKE quilt show.
When it was suggested by one of our quilters to depict social justice issues through the quilting arts, we knew (or at least hoped) the works would transcend beyond fabric and thread.
We wanted to start a discussion. And we did.
When quilt and art enthusiasts crossed the threshold of the Aaron Hendrick house, a historic landmark in Warren County, NC, they were exposed to imagery, some symbolic, some literal, but all meaningful.
Several attendees wanted to know more about the quilts, a step beyond the description cards placed beside them. We graciously obliged.
Thank you to all the town, county, and state officials and everyone who attended our quilt show.
Special thanks to the African American Quilt Circle of Durham, NC for sharing and allowing us to display your beautiful and poignant works on our walls.
To the art students at the Northwest Collegiate and Technical Academy — We thoroughly enjoyed meeting with you all and were left in awe of your artistic visions and the produced work.
We look forward to seeing you all at the next quilt show. – HQ
