Unpacking Collections: Symposium on Researching and Using Quilt History Collections (October 8-10, 2010)

My sister, Kyra Hicks, will be joined by Carolyn Mazloomi, Lauren Cross, Patricia Turner and Merikay Waldvogel at the Michigan State University Museum on October 8-10. Please help us spread the word about the Cuesta Benberry Symposium by sharing this post with any villagers that live in Michigan or that are fans of the ancient art of quilting.

This sounds so interesting. I wish that I could attend. I am into quilts big time.

Many AAs do not realize that our style of quiliting tell stories. There are some important symbolism that are quilted and the work is beautiful!

There is a local artist named Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson who does some amazing quilts. They tell stories about our community. She is known nationally and internationally for her work. She is a true our story artist.

Lady D - do you make quilts yourself?

Have you visited my sister's blog that focuses on African American quilting?
